Hello to all, I saw in other post a channel mapping posted by Iceberg.
There I didn't see any transponder beamed from D*4S? D*4S is now only a backup?
I couldn't find any reported failures of D*4S that could force backup status my source:

Sat ND | Failures

I know odd Transponders come from D*8 but I'm not to clear about even transponders
if some come from 9S or some from 4S.
All I have learned from those birds is they're actually located:

D*8 @ -100.88 / D*9S @ -101.13 / D*4S @ -101.17

Thank you in advance!!

There is a poster at dbstalk that has a nice spreadsheet of what is on what satellite and transponder. You are right about odd transponders are from D8. The only other satellite I saw listed at 101 is D9S, which has the even transponders.

Could be, I used the same screen name at dbstalk.com, Raoul5788. I stopped posting over there a little while ago. They are such asswipes I couldn't take it any more! ;) BTW, my name is Chip. Raoul is just a screen name. Oh, and I'm guessing that Iceberg has read this thread. He doesn't miss much around here!
