Here is tonight's list of cities which will be moving to the Echostar X Satellite!

If you are in any of these areas in which channels are moving to the Echostar X satellite we invite you (in fact URGE you) to post your 110 signal reading here. Make sure when you include your signal reading to tell us where approxamately where you are, what kind of receiver your taking readings from, possibly a little bit about your setup and finally your transponer signal readings. (Please do not post reading until after your city has moved to Echostar X) :)

I am also attaching the full schedule that was sent to me by a few of my contacts (thank you to them) but I must state, this in NO WAY is an official Echostar document, the listings shown here may or may not be accurate, this document is for reference use only and the data contained may change at anytime.

There now that I got that out of the way...

Here you go enjoy and please lets get those reception reports going!

I do thank all you nite owls who will be providing some very valuable realtime feedback as Dish does their channel shuffling.

Hmm, the Echo X spotbeam map must be a bit off if beam 38 is covering Las Vegas and Fresno rather than Las Vegas and Reno.

I am in the Mobile, AL DMA. I reactivated my locals today after I read that they moved to 110 from 105. I turned them off in March when my 622 and dish 1000 were installed. I had to convince the tech person that my locals had in fact moved from 105 to 110 last night. He turned them on and was completly surprised when I said they were on my TV.

Here is my signal strength for 110. The reading comes from tuner 1 on my 622 (125% max)

3-100

Is Tr # 22 on 110 now a spot or something? I see lots of postings stating (LOCALS) on it? I though that tr # 12 was the only one being changed over last night and tonight for now? :)

Philadelphia Locals

Confirming the Philadelphia locals switched last night - and are located on Spotbeam 1, not 4 as was listed in the spreadsheet.

I'm in northern DE - just SW of Philadelphia - receiving signal levels of 97-98 off of Spotbeam 1. ( I was expecting a little higher off of a SP)

As was expected, HD locals still remain strong off of 61.5

Yea I caught that too... They moved from TP 1 to TP 12.. TP 12 is the one you want to give signal readings on :)

Duluth moved from TP's 2, 8, 10 (yes 6 channels split on 3 TP's) to TP 12

yesterday I had 0 signal...now today I have 112. I don't have Dish anymore but I set up a 311 I have. This is in Minneapolis (out of the DMA). Old TP's covered Mpls & most of Duluth DMA. I think the new TP will cover all the Duluth DMA :)

The Washington D.C. minor locals at 61.5 are not listed on the spreadsheet above ... does this mean they are staying on 61.5 for now, or is this probably an oversight / typo?

I asked this very same question yesterday in this post. The opinion is that DC LIL will be moved off 61.5 to 110 or 119 at a later time, but E* has made no public announcements yet. They will probably address the left over split locals after this iteration of populating E-10.

No this is not a typo atleast I dont think it is... What most likely is happening.. thoes lil channels are moving to a diffrent spot other than echostar x. It could be that they will move to 119 in the future. Keep in mind that the list is only for lil moving to 110 and is not offical and can be changed at any time :)

Philly locals - checked the levels tonight off of TP 12 on 110 - signal level of 97-98 on a spotbeam - even though my locals are still showing as being on 110 SB 1 when you use the point dish option - so, either way, they're seeing the same signal strength

Here is something weird...Bob (or Hokie or JohnH) see if this shows up in the tables to see if they show for you too

Duluth, MN moved from TP 2,8 & 10 (2 on 2, 3 on 8 and 1 on 10) over to TP12 SB 28. When I scanned "ALL" on my FTA system (yes they're scrambled) but they show up on TP12 as
WDIO, KDLH, KBJR, KQDS, WDSE and KRII (which they should)

but on the old Transponders, they show up also. They show up on the Coolsat as "TV 11", "TV 12" etc... The other channels on those TP's show up as their legit name (the callsign for the locals that are on those also)

so they havent pulled the plug on the channels on the old TP yet...they're just "hiding" I guess :)
