Wow! Given the size of Tucson as compared to some of the other markets listed, I'm bummed we're not on the list. I understood we were on the list for this year, but maybe not.

The current effort is focused on filling the E*12 spot-beams from 61.5°. There's been little if any mention of the markets shown in the 11 western CONUS states while this is going on, but they'll probably need to get to them to reach the target of 100 by the end of the year. Or they may have to wait for the E*5 replacement at 129° which I'm guessing won't be in service until early 2009. Dish really needs everyone's launches to go smoothly this year so Ciel-2 can be in place before E*5 can no longer be kept in place.

p.s. There is room today for Tucson on a spot-beam from (IIRC) 110°.
Thanks very much for this info!!
