    Status after last night's moves:

    No locals left on 61.5

    148/119 splits remaining: Houston, Tulsa, Oklahoma City

    Scheduled moves to E10 pending:
    Apr 10: Mobile APT (probably to be mirrored from Birmingham/Huntsville)
    Apr 11: Houston
    Apr 13: OK City
    Apr 17: Salt Lake
    Apr 17: Honolulu (may not happen due to heavy D300 usage)
    Apr 17: San Antonio HD (probably delayed until SD stuff is done)
    Apr 19: Chico-Redding, CA
    May 05: Tulsa, Kansas City, Portland OR, Birmingham, Huntsville

    SuperDISH moves to be done by May 5:
    Albany NY
    Champaign IL
    Chattanooga TN
    Columbia/Jefferson City MO
    Columbia SC
    Davenport IA
    El Paso TX
    Fargo ND
    Florence/Myrtle Beach SC (NBC and NC PTV only)
    Ft. Smith AR
    Greensboro/Winston-Salem NC
    Greenville/New Bern NC
    Lincoln NE
    Meridian MS
    Milwaukee WI (PBS only)
    Missoula MT
    Mobile AL (AL PTV only)
    Monroe LA
    Montgomery AL
    Norfolk VA
    Peoria IL
    Portland ME
    Quincy IL
    Rochester NY
    Rockford IL
    Savannah GA
    Scranton/Wilkes Barre PA
    South Bend IN
    Syracuse NY
    Topeka KS
    Wichita KS
    Youngstown OH

    Harrisburg, PA may be messed up again. Franklin County mirrors were not listed as moved from 119tp3northeast, but 11 DC and Hartford channels were moved there, so Harrisburg can’t possibly fit there, too.

    Now that WMUR - Manchester, NH is on 110, any idea on when NH residents out of the Burlington DMA will be able to receive WMUR?
    Thanks!

    Missed those, I had been glancing at the ones shown in the SV range.

    I hope TP 4 is stronger than te last aborted move, as I will complain about rain fade if I get it.

    Which means that there is now a lot of free room available for new uplinks, such as some new eastern DMA's or int'l stations!?!?!?!... I think they should finish SD locals first...

    Correction: Burlington is on E10 tp4s4, along with Harrisburg.

    Burlington was supposed to go to t25s8, but signal problems were reported in southern VT. Can anyone in northern New England confirm whether or not t25 is lit there?

    Ya, would also be nice if anyone was able to give reception reports or scan for anything that may or may not be lit up on the Mexico and Cuba spotbeams... You never know what Dish may or may not be doing...

    I am now getting the DC channels that used to require a 2nd dish. I noticed though that on channel 68, which is supposed to WJAL, that a channel 13 PBS channel from Newark NJ is on. What's up with that? Did DISH put the wrong channel on or am I now getting this channel from Newark?

    I'm a little confused about this SS - can you explain what the numbers & state abbreviation mean in each column/row. (use the s19 row for example, since that's what I'm interested in ;) )

    Also, like for example on spot 11, I see a couple entries for IL on the last columns - what does that mean?

    Obviously, from the other post, I can see that Chicago locals (except the big 4) are on x-ponder 31 & St.Louis is on 29 - I assume that x-ponder 27 is not lit up yet. (maybe it's for Champaign?)
