Re: SES 15 @ 129.1 w

SES 15 will be used for live TV entertainment by airlines. If it is FTA, we'll be able to watch the in-flight movies too. :watchingtv

Re: Has the NASA Transponder's Power been reduced?

NASA transponder SNR is down for me.

On my 12' dish I get

Reelz: 17 dB
Nasa: 12.3 dB
ESTV: 16 dB

There could be adjacent satellite interference or NASA needs to crank up the power. Those with smaller than 10 footers probably aren't even getting a whiff of the signal.

Re: Dish shuts down cable company in Belize

Dish is acting like GI back in the old c band days. GI was even worse cause they jailed a bunch of people in addition to filing civil lawsuits. Bob Cooper got served for publishing his satellite magazine but wasn't involved in piracy. Even though he was based in Providenciales and outside the usa he...

Re: C-Band is doom... FAST

Just saw this a couple of days ago. :bananna: https://spacenews.com/ses-weeks-away-from-ordering-six-c-band-satellites/ Thanks. Just saw that too. SES wouldn't be ordering more C band satellites if C band was going away. They're not that dumb. If anything, I think they will be launching more satell...
