That's what I'm thinking.   You can probably get a FCC emergency ruling in a day or two, take 2-3 days to drift AMC-6 over and have some replacement capacity in place in a week.  Maybe even divert AMC-4 from going all the way to west arc while SES figures out what is next.  North America capacity needs probably doesn't dictate a new sat in 2-3 years so it may just be to drift a temp sat to 83W, move customers in a more orderly fashion elsewhere and abandon 83W rights.

Georgia lottery feed moved to G19 3951 V 13235. I guess the WSB news feeds will be here as well.

I'm not seeing any beacon at 83W on the BLSA.
I am seeing a spike at 11800 H on Arsat2 at 81W.

Has anybody found where the Pa Cable Network may have moved to, if they even made a move?  I've checked SES-1 and some others but haven't found it yet.

This is on their website:
PCN is experiencing technical difficulties and may not be viewable on some cable systems. Engineers are currently working to resolve this problem. We appreciate your patience during this time.

I looked around yesterday and didn't find it either.

I live in central pa and watch PCN a bit so I asked them the status and got this reply....

All C-band satellite affiliates will need to swing their dish 18 degrees to the West , change the elevation three degrees and peak and pole.


This doesn't make any sense.
The feeds may have moved from a satellite at 83°WL to 101°WL, a difference of 18° west,
but the number of degrees of azimuth, and especially of elevation, that each affiliate will have to move their dish obviously depends on the affiliate's latitude and longitude. Not sure what the "and pole" is supposed to mean either. Obviously, something got lost in translation between the engineering and PR departments.

The latest satellite tracking that I can find shows that AMC 9 is at 83.675W and drifting .169 degrees West per day.  Is this going to be another Galaxy 15 which drifted around uncontrolled for six months before the batteries died and the system rebooted?

I haven't seen any source saying AMC-9 failed in the "on" position like Galaxy 15 did.  SES confirmed AMC-9 is drifting so the drift part of your post is true.  Right now, it shouldn't be any different situation than some past satellites that failed without being placed in a disposal orbit.  Each operator of an active satellite will have to figure out if they need to make a stationkeeping move if they think the failed drifting satellite going through their active satellite's box may be too close for comfort during the time in the box.

SES's FCC request to operate AMC 9 outside stationkeeping box has been approved.

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!
