next burn within 5 minutes ...
D-13 was authorized then discontinued.
I think Tom Robertson has an info post on it.
Next bird will be D-14.
No word yet on frequency payload:
KU/KA/BSS or likely some combination of ALL!
Scheduled 2nd Breeze-M burn should be firing now;
A long 17:17 min burn that will occur from about the south of Brazil all the way across the Atlantic ocean to somewhere over Algeria in Northwest Africa to inject the orbital unit into it's intermediate orbit ...
I missed it live, but watching the replay right now....the news anchor girl is kinda cute
I set this to record last week - came home from work tonight and the launch did not record. It was canceled in the playlist and the guide shows it as a channel not received even though it is turned on.
I am kind of bummed. Hopefully the actual satellite will be better handled than the coverage. :nono2:
I'm sure the answer is somewhere in this thread but don't feel like looking through 60+ pages. So my question is when can we expect to see the next new HD channel added to our channel lineup once D12 is up and running? Is by March too early?
Yes, March is too early for D12. But a few new HD channels might be possible from D10-11 once D12 is successful and NFL ST channels are available.
Just saw the tape. Hail to the Russians for more HD.
NFLST is over next week. Maybe we'll get some new HD to ring in the new year?
Should be finished now....
Updates likely pending any time now...
I wanted to be in the chat room during launch, but at least I got to watch the launch live!
Now bring on the HD (and HD-LIL)!!
I'm refreshing the blog like crazy, but nothing yet
Well the second Breeze-M burn should have long shut down by now, but I suppose it's still out of range of Russian western tracking stations.
So... the wait continues....
Supposedly the wait was 1 hour for regaining the signal...so the wait should not be too long now for another update....
As the Breeze M upper stage of our Proton M rocket continues
its climb into space with the DTV 12 satellite, we have
received confirmation that the 2nd burn of the upper stage
occurred and shut down as scheduled.

As the Breeze M upper stage of our Proton M rocket continues its climb into space with the DTV 12 satellite, we have received confirmation that the 2nd burn of the upper stage occurred and shut down as scheduled.
The next events are scheduled for about 2 hours from now. The Breeze M upper stage will ignite for a 3rd time and burn for approximately 12 minutes; after that the additional propellant tank will be jettisoned, and the 4th burn will start and complete. All this will happen in a span of almost 20 minutes while the vehicle is again out of range of a ground station. We should reacquire the vehicle shortly after the 4th burn ends.
All systems NOM EE NAL...
So far...all is going perfectly according to plan.
it would not let me record it while I was watching it. I could trickplay but no recording.
2 different dvrs' were tried to make sure.
Yep, we can hope, but there's always the negotiations (I also hope negotiations have already been completed).
