I think I noted that in the comments. From some of the narratives filed along with the application, The FCC instructions for Schedule S are archaic. They arewritten with the concept of one uplink channel, feeding one transponder with one downlink channel. The regullations required DirecTV to file it that way. I just used the Schedule S transponder table to get this started, and will refine it. As I read the descriptions, they could turn down any of the 3 output beams for any of the transponders, if the didn't want to broadcast it to that area. I kind of doubt they will do that. as you describe it, each uplink beam has its own receiver and amplifier. Is this true? If so, it is pronanbly for redundancy, but since they use the same output frequency and beams, I doubt they will ever be used simultaneously. So as I see it, each group of six lines on that chart represents one TID or TPN, and it will appear in the system data that way. How to describe the transponder names and uplinks and downlinks in one line is the challenge. I want to condense it, but I am not sure how. As it stands today, any information in the weekly downloads will populate all 6 of the lines with the same information, unless they assign different TIDs to each output beam. They have never done that.
