I live in southeastern Connecticut. After looking at the Dish Channel Chart I see my local (Hartford) HD channels are sent via 61.5W, spot beam 3, which places me a tad outside the red oval. This explains why I always lose my local channels at any hint of bad weather while still received the channels broadcast over CONUS. So my question is to any Dish Tech on the forum is, “Why are local CT HD channels broadcast over a spot beam that only covers 2/3 of the state?” PLEASE tell me there are future plans to correct this. After all, there are spot beams on the 61.5W satellite that DO cover my entire state. Equipment: 1000.4 dish, (61.5, 72.7W 77.0W) VIP211K & VIP722 receivers.
