News Release: 1/18/2010
This is a news update from one of the three board members that started this org. We would first offer thanks to the LORD for the help and recommendations of the FTA supporters that have contacted us.
After the board meeting today we have decided that we will support the MPEG-2 format for at least a year. Our first option was MPEG-4 due to the 20 channel capability. We will be going to MPEG-4 in the future ,This is more cost effective to us.
We will have a guide for all channels. Not all Fta"s will work correctly with this guide.
Dish size 30 inches is the nominal size., But I will not rule out a smaller one. If you go much smaller your reception will not be reliable.
We need more stations signed on. We are also starting up some stations with other organizers.
We have been in contact with other Studios and uplinkers that have offered their help. If a deal can be worked out with these people we will have a much larger channel lineup with these studios that are currently on cable and pay satellite.
George Metcalf :Retired NASA engineer that helped send up the first DBS satellite. George has advised us on uplinking issues and is a friend.
He has also put us in contact with other persons that have the same thinking on the FTA / TVRO market.
Our goal is at least 40 channels, with a 100 channel maximum capability.
