That's cool! Lost NASA when they moved but maybe a little something to make up for it!
Many receivers cannot properly handle the hundreds of audio PIDs on a single transponder. While some receivers are limited to 4 or 10 or 25 audio pids per transponder, other receivers can log them all with multiple scanning of each transponder. One current transponder on 139w has over 1000 audio services.
So,is it anyones quess what or where the Alaskan tv stations are going to do..Hopefully they will stick around..watch CBS at times on this Mux and PBS.
Sounds hopeful...Thank youI suppose AMC-11 and AMC-10 are potential good choices (haven't looked at the Alaska footprint yet for those two) but even the health/age of those two birds are having some programmers scared enough to jump ship.
Seeing how SES is trying to do a center-of-the-arc thing, they'll probably put the Alaskans on SES-1, SES-3 or AMC-18 if there is good Alaska coverage from one or many of those sats.
I'll have to keep an eye out on the ARCS webpage for any possible movement news.
Thought I read somewhere that there was some mirroring going on now.
