Bell Express VU PDF listings/uplink report discussion - 11/1/2006 - New format
Ok Bell guys/gals....here's the new format I'm kicking around. I'm reworking the uplink report tool to also include spotbeam descriptions to help users read the changes on the DishNetwork spotbeams. What does this have to do with Bell ExpressVu? A lot! I've designed the uplink tool to accommodate multiple providers, so Bell ExpressVu's reports will benefit from this also. But wait...Bell doesn't have spotbeams! What does this have to do with Bell ExpressVu? I told you already..a lot! We all know from this forum that due to the shifting of the BellExpressVU's owned/leased birds has caused some TP's to be lost in California and Florida. I'd like to ask for help from these users to determine which TP's are missing and designate these as so on the uplink reports. The description will also reflect on the PDF listings too.
I have every TP described as Canada/US beam right now but this will soon change from you guys/gals feedback. Here's a snapshot of what the new report will look like:

New changes per ONE PM I had on the TP issues in the Southeast and Southwest US.
Very interesting. The TPs that the Southeast and Southwest US no longer receive on 82w are the same TPs that now have a level 100 signal at my vacation home in West Virginia outside of Pittsburgh, PA (about 350km from the US/Canada border). Those TPs didn't even suffer rain fade during severe rain last week while all others from 82w and all TPs from 91w did.

Not really spotbeams, just the ConUS beam shifted north.
