    ANIK F2 - Thy End Is Near

    East/West does not increase much so it becomes more of north/south ellipsoid. Been reading up on inclined and the North/ South deviation can get quite large as in multiple degrees, if the operator chooses to not control it.. The article says uncontrolled latitude increases 0.8 degree per...

    If they did (NOT) apply for a ku license for usa reception, they would likely not include the beam in the usa license aplication.

    ANIK F2 - Thy End Is Near

    Since Anik 2 has licensed receiving antennas in the US, they will be filing wirh the FCC for an inclined orbit. And after it happens, the wobble will slowly increase, no overnight change. So watch the FCC filings which will include the date when they want to start widening the station keeping...

    The ITU assigns Geostationary transmission frequency right from a longitude to countries depending on their geographic location. Canada, USA, Mexico, and a bunch of the islands are all in Region 2.. Canada owns the Region 2 transmission rights for their licensed frequencies for the entire...

    No way would I mess with those PIRATE straming services. The content providers go after them and not only whack them, they also take action to get the billing records of those buying the service to whack them also. You definity do not want to be one of "the examples" the wrath of the gods...

    Where I learned to love reverse polish notation. The first electronic I used was the Friden 130 the boss bought to replace a couple electric/mechanical machines. It took up a good hunk of a desktop and could add, subtract, multiply, and divide (no exponentiation or trig functions). It used...

    ANIK F2 - Thy End Is Near

    Looking at the signal strength maps, I would guess the offset will essentially eliminate "southern" service. At best, they might be able to delay the end of F2 signals in the Canadian coverage area for a while by changing the error correction rates In the south and far north, where the signal is...

    Quarter 3, 2022 Report

    Two incompatable receivers and lnbs. So one must go. Toss in $400 for new receiver and lnb for something like 8 million units 3.2 billion dollars and not going to happen. At best , they could eliminate duplicate back office staff and maybe one orbital slot (1 or 2 satellites).

    Quarter 3, 2022 Report

    Dish satellite service has moved to the cash cow mode where they put minimal money into it and use the profits it spits out to grow other business segments. The wireless business is now where the money is (the tail that wags the dog) and the area to investigate when reviewing the financials.
