    Well, I do have to admit, he has been nice so far, so there's no lie in that part. The reason he can't find this data, is because it likely doesn't exist on the 'net anymore. He's 15 years too late. If he'd only take my advice and contact those companies DIRECTLY like I advised him to do so, he'd likely get the info direct from them.

    Or maybe not, because they might not have it either. However, if THEY don't have it, and nobody here remembers, I guess this is a dead "project".

    If he'd come out and actually say why he wants it, rather than just the same vague answer of for research, historical and archival purposes, he might get more help.

    Research? Historical and archival purposes? To what end? What benefit to anyone is this information? What is the expected end goal of accumulating this information? I have a few charts from 1988 but I sure won't post them for someone who wants to play games.

    Hey guys - Whew, thanks for posting this! I have a friend with a dish who is 22 light years away and he is missing his Orbit magazine - I'll be sure to pass this info on.

    I actually mean a Ku satellite chart from that period. A chart from 1997/98.

    +Raine the reason why I'd want the satellite charts (Ku Band) is to evaluate all the networks, feeds, affiliates & backhauls that were for the satellite, other than research & archival purposes.

    because It can't be found anywhere. Not on the net. (I tried the Internet Archive Wayback Machine but couldn't get a link for the Ku Satellite Chart) and the reason for it is knowledge of what channels were on regular Ku Band.

    what about LyngSat and SatCoDX with Wayback Machine? They have Ku... Just don't expect a 2-page grid like Analog C-Band, as far as I remember, Ku stuff was never presented like that.

    Ku band was mostly an occasional video band filled with news feeds, sports backhauls, teleconferences, educational networks, special reports, special events, SNG & ENG feeds, wacky feeds, etc... Spacenet 3R (SN-3R) went primarily all Ku after GE Americom's GE-3 satellite replaced the weaker SN3 signals on most C-Band systems. but what were the NBC affiliates on those feeds? (GE-1 (now AMC-1), SBS-4, Satcom K2, Skypath feeds etc...)

    +Mikel I'm just trying to find some data information and that's the reason why I went to Rick's.

    Rick confirmed him, so he should be good to go. You never know, somebody over there might be able to come up with the charts he wants.

    Joseph, Rick doesn't stand for what he feels is any nonsense on his forum, so you MUST explain yourself carefully before you ask these questions over there. Also, you MUST keep all of them all in the same post, as long as they pertain to your quest for KU sat info regarding these questions. If it's for a college project or something like that, simply say that. If you really are just simply curious and want to know as part of a hobby or something, then simply say that. Then sit back a bit and wait for answers.

    Just tell them up front why you are hoping to get this info when you go to post.

    If you are upfront with us why you are needing this info we don't mind helping you out. I was new here too but you have to put down what you are trying to accomplish. Just my 2 cents on this matter.

    +danristheman I am needing this info because its part of a satellite hobby and it's for research! (the NBC feeds on Ku were also carried on Satcom K2).

    It's for "research" doncha'know... Think OCD, and you'd be getting close.

    He's being nice all through this deal, so what the heck. Who are we to deny a quest, if there's a way to fulfill it? Somebody eventually might find it.
