    Looks like Macy's feed is gone forever formerly freq, 11.856 GHz, V, bitrate 3.547 MBs. You might set up a new landmark on a data feeds on freq, 12.040 GHz, V, bitrate 30.123 MBs. The signal strength is very strong at 79 to 81% here in New Mexico. This will help you to home in your dish to this bird.:hatsoff

    What might fall football game feeds have to do with the shutdown of the Macy's fee? I miss the connection...

    Can't say I ever tuned in the service during the past 15+ years.

    Macy's has gone away, not the satellite. Echostar 105 is good to go for another decade or two baring some kind of failure for anyone who wants to lease transponder space to feed football games or other things.
