A lot of these channels moved to 105W

EDIT:
Check out this thread for more info on what channels are on 105W

Lyngsat is not accurate.
All radio channels moved to AMC 18.
GCI moved to Eutelsat 115.

Only the ARCS Alaska mux remains on AMC 8.  However it's footprint covers Alaska and Pacific Northwest only.

Thank you for the clarification; I was wondering whether GCI was still on AMC 8.
However, are you 100% sure about the footprint?
Every footprint map I have seen for AMC 8 shows full CONUS coverage:
https://www.ses.com/our-coverage/satellites/301
Are the horizontal frequencies on AMC 8 on a Alaska & PNW only footprint, and vertical are CONUS?
I seem to recall that was the case with its predecessor at 139°W, C-5, but I thought AMC 8 was full CONUS.
I know I have locked AMC 8 before, but don't remember if it was ARCS, GCI, or both.
I would just try it again and see for myself, but I have an AZ/EL non-motorized mount, and it's a lot of effort to move the dish that far by hand, and it's less than 12° above the horizon.
Thanks.

I believe, but not sure that AMC8 was CONUS, but there were some Alaska broadcasts, Fairbanks PBS and some radio stations that were spot beamed for Alaskan use only. For years I got the GCI signals on AMC7 & 8 here in West Central Indiana.

On AMC 8, vertical is CONUS and horizontal is spot beamed to Alaska.
I can receive the ARCS Alaska mux here in Northern California.

OK, thank you photoman76.
Lyngsat has both horizontal and vertical beams on AMC 8 linked to the CONUS footprint map, yet another error.

 I used to swear by LingSat, now all I use it for is locate a satellite position.

I've never sworn by lyngsat.  I've known from early on that the site is in europe so anything listed for North America was from contributions rather than direct observations and we know how fast things can change in the north american arc rendering some of the stuff on lyngsat obsolete or missing.

Guys, you have to keep in mind that the owner of Lyngsat is located on the other side of the Globe.  He can only update based on what users send to him.  So keep that in mind as you use them as a source.  Still has a lot of good info, even if many of the channel listings are incorrect.  Just know that as you use them.

Keeping a current list of channels on satellites is a none ending job.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
