It is owned/operated by AT&T/DirecTV and manufactured by Boeing. :doh There are numerous satellites at that orbital slot, so exploding debris could cause SES1 proble...

Re: Server Upgrades.

Yes the new server and latest version of apache seem to be real good at detecting scripts that access this domain. When they do, they don't transmit any data. Only human operators using standard browsers are allowed thru to our site. In fact, the detection is so good that our own scripts are being h...

Server Upgrades

TVROSat Members,

We recently updated servers and now some of our scripts for the charts are throwing errors. The forum seems to be okay. We are working on fixing all the bugs and things should be back to normal soon.

Thanks for your patience.

Re: Thank you.

I believe the AnikF1R @ 107.3w is being retired. It is must be out of fuel.

Canadian content is being moved to AnikF3 @ 119w. Hopefully the Canadian networks will move here too.

Re: Mesh vs Solid Dish

Fatso has it right. Most are too broke to buy a big dish, especially a commercial solid one, even if they wanted to. Our sponsors could build them, but they would just sit in the warehouse for years. I've been told even the TV stations are buying mesh to save money these days. People complain about ...

Re: Mesh vs Solid Dish

Mesh is the right solution for backyard enthusiasts. They are light weight, install on a smaller post and encounter much less wind resistance. Since you can "see" through them, they are much less of an eye sore and you can still see your backyard. Solid dishes are mostly for the TV stations. They ar...

Re: Great Movies on 97 west

Similar story on the Mexican satellites located at 113 and 117 west. If you do a blind scan starting around midnight, you will likely find several US movies playing. :wink:

Re: WTB affordable positioner

$45 won't even buy you an LNBF these days. :verysad Titanium no longer sells positioners and Rick has been out of stock for years. Our sponsor sells the Superjack controller if anyone is interested: http://www.tek2000.com/cgi-bin/web.cgi?command=product&item=SuperJack%20C-Band%20Dish%20Positioner-ND
