    TNGTony .. another one:

    "KTNC TV 42 (Azteca) Concord KTNC 8641 20s43 110° E*10 Local - Sacramento (Mirror 8231)"

    This one is wrong (20s43 is wrong for this one) .. i think maybe it has something to do with it being a mirror of 8231

    John never mentioned it as moved to 20s43 neither.. in his report the entries bypass ch 8641 (they go from 8640 to 8642) :

    "8640 KTFK MOVED FROM Tp 6 ConUS beam on EchoStar 2 at 148w
    TO Tp 20 Spotbeam 43 from Spokane for EchoStar 10 at 110w

    8640 KTFK, KTFK REMOVED FROM Tp 5 ConUS beam on EchoStar 5 at 129w

    8642 KSPX MOVED FROM Tp 6 ConUS beam on EchoStar 2 at 148w
    TO Tp 20 Spotbeam 43 from Spokane for EchoStar 10 at 110w

    8642 KSPX, KSPX REMOVED FROM Tp 15 ConUS beam on EchoStar 5 at 129w"

    ....
    therefore 8641 .. for now, should remain at old tp(s) ..at both 148 and 129 locations.. like this:

    KTNC TV 42 (Azteca) Concord KTNC 8641 27 148
    KTNC TV 42 (Azteca) Concord KTNC 8641 21 129

    The chart notation is erroneously specific. The retailer schedule lists planned moves to Dish500, not necessarily to E10 or 110.

    The E10 schedule does not list Columbia at all. That doesn't necessarily mean Columbia won't be moved there, anyway, but it could also be moved to 119 nlt May 5.

    Darkman,

    I'll take care of these issues as soon as time allows. Thanks for the corrections.

    Joblo, a notation that "fell off" the end of the changes at the top of the chart. On 4/6 I posted the folowing:

    "PLEASE NOTE THE WORD "SCHEDULED". Schedules change, are updated or revised on a daily basis. This is not a "promise". It is a work schedule. Do not expect every city on the list to be moved at 12:00:01am on the date mentioned!"

    See ya
    Tony

    tony, on the 110 chart, you still have ppv guide included, it was moved to 119. The overall chart is correct.

    Tony,

    Erroneous wrt slot, not date.

    Correct notation would be “Sched. move to 110 or 119 [insert date]”

    There is/was another "TEST" channel in the system. Channel 9949 just changed name to TST. It is encrypted. No EPG entry for it either. Are we having fun, yet? :D

    Thanks to all for the corrections to the chart. I think I got them all cleared up with the exception of the "move" date issue.

    See ya

    Someday we'll have to renumber E8's remaining spotbeams to match the FCC data (if you like). :D

    Unfortunatly "we are" NOT home "to have fun"... :(

    9949 however was known to be:

    Test Channel (Currently Showing Pentagon Ch.) TEST 9949 11 119

    Wonder what's up with that then...

    --
    P.S. Dish logo looks good though .. on attachment for ch 151 :lol:

    I don't believe this channel is showing the Pentagon Channel. Last report I got was that it is "Sparky" and engineering channel.

    See ya

    That would require renaming all 24 Tps which have been used for spotbeams.

    The issue (and it is not a biggie) is that the spot beam numbers in the FCC/ITU records do not match the ones we commonly have used (including on TNGTony's charts). I believe there are even a few errors as to what spot a beam is actually on. (eg: Spots 6 and 7 are practically identical except for transponders. The old spot beam map had Spot 14 shadowing Spot 13 where Spot 1 really is. Spot 14 is AK, Spot "26" is really Spot 10.)

    The good news is that of the 25 beams possible on E8, the five on TP4 have been taken out of use (including 4s15 that was apparently never used in Hawaii) as well as the three on spot 4 (2s4, 8s4 and 10s4) - so we only have 17 left to deal with.

    TID = Spot
    242 = 2s10
    246 = 6s5
    248 = 8s13
    250 = 10s13
    252 = 2s6
    256 = 6s12
    258 = 8s6
    260 = 10s6
    266 = 6s1
    272 = 2s2
    276 = 6s2
    278 = 8s14
    280 = 10s3
    282 = 2s8
    286 = 6s10
    288 = 8s7
    290 = 10s7
    Discontinued
    244 = 4s5
    254 = 4s9
    264 = 4s15
    274 = 4s15
    284 = 4s16
    262 = 2s4
    268 = 8s4
    270 = 10s4


    As I said, no biggie - but with all the other updates and moves it would be a time to fit this in. :D
