    He's out of town traveling with family this week, I think. And besides, he was still posting in this threat until after midnight - let the man sleep. :p

    Yeah....I knew that...I think he was doing the chat room last night from his laptop in the hotel room.

    I thought there was no sleep in the rocket and satellite businesses...;):D:lol:

    When will D12 call home for the first time to let Boeing and D* know it's OK? I think in past launches a station in South Africa picks up that signal first?

    Just FYI, here's the current projected ground track for D12 as it begins the long climb to its testing slot. Note the crazy shapes and remember this is due to a number of things - primarily the very highly elliptical transfer orbit and its inclination above the equator. The satellite isn't really doing crazy turns in space but it is moving in a curved orbit as the earth continues to rotate beneath it.

    To a layperson like me (I'm just a lawyer), I am so impressed with the knowledge and effort that has been put forth here on dbstalk to keep us all informed.

    I will never cease to be amazed that man can build a rocket to send a satellite like D12 into outer space... and then it actually works (fingers crossed). To think a company like ILS does a half dozen or so of these a year is mind boggling. It is a world that I will never know or experience but because of people like LameLefty and Sixto I'm able to be a little closer to it. Thanks. :)

    See.....I told you rocket and satellite people rarely sleep. :D

    Morning Sixto...and kudos to you and Lefty on the chat room information during the launch.

    Thanks.

    Nice press release from Romulo. The future is bright.

    References "5" satellites more then once. Despite SW1 going to 1 channel recently, SW1 and SW2 looking to continue with a major role (hopefully).

    Thanks! But can we use the "code" code to help keep it in format for Orbitron?
    Code:
    DIRECTV 12

    Makes it a LOT easier to just copy and paste the info!
