A few questions...

Is Galaxy 16 going to immediately replace Galaxy 4R, or will there be a period of days, weeks, or even months before it replaces G4R at 99 degrees west?

Also, what will become of G4R? Is it being retired, or is it moving to a new location?

Ku payload is full...No FTA unless things change...C-band will have AdHoc.

Just curious where this information was found. Is there a website that shows Galaxy 16's expected transponder allocations?

I think G16 will replace G4 (like when G12 replaced G5) and G4 will retire

KU is mainly HITS2Home & 4DTV stuff.

Not true though, G4R was launch in 2000. It has at least 9-10 more years to go.

that's why I said "I THINK"....do you feel the need to contradict everything I say?
Oh by the way...I love using my "it won't work well" 6 foot dish to get lots of strong DVB signals :)

uh???? I don't contradict what you said, I simply state the fact. It's good you love your 6ft dish, no need to bring it up again. Seems like you let your personal feelings get involved here, that's not a good sign especially when you are the mod...
Peace

That is incorrect. G4R is due to run out of fuel in late 2006 and will be retired when G16 replaces it.

Thanks b5ander. I figured it was ready to run out soon. Like I say, hopefully G16 has just as good footprint as G4 :)

nope. I feel that you have posted pretty much nothing but negativity here. That's not why we have the board. We have the board to have fun and help each other out.

And attacking staff does get you banned.
Have a pleasant day :)

WELL SAID, we can certainly do without this kind of blatant negativity.

I see that Irony is dead but the God Complex is alive and well. (shakes head) Some things never change.
