Where it's Warm
So, um, I know you said that the data had been lost for a while, but why exactly wasn't Dish required to keep it updated?

Permits are typically issued for 15 years and updates only required when satellite is moved to new location.

Just a note so the impatient know that we are indeed hard at work analyzing the data. Hope to have a progress report soon.

Where it's Warm
Thanks for the update and the hard work. :)

Still working on it. A nasty little job. The problem is not just moving in one direction, but a little rotation also and looks like somewhere between 110 and 150 mile shift.
