I'll be about 500 miles away from home watching the eclipse in Nebraska, but I'll be interested in any feed reports as the eclipse traverses the United States from about 1-3 PM EDT. There are numerous local and national special reports and live shots planned.

http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/105311/stations-prepare-for-total-solar-eclipse/page/1

Quote:

Gray has at least 10 stations directly in the path of the eclipse, and several more will send additional crews, cameras and contribution technology to help cover it. “This is truly going to be all-hands-on-deck event,” she says.

Sinclair Broadcast Group plans a major effort leveraging its nationwide presence to cover the eclipse as well, says Jeff Parsons, Sinclair director of news and special projects and West Coast group news manager.

Sinclair will “maximize stations like KATU” in Portland, Ore., sending crews from the station to places where the eclipse will peak, he says.

Stations in Boise, Idaho; Salt Lake City, which will cover Wyoming; Nashville; and Columbia, S.C., are among the six to eight that will contribute live eclipse reports from the field, says Parsons.

...

Even if broadcast coverage of the eclipse is socked in nationwide by clouds, broadcasters have a solution, says NASA spokesperson Dwayne Brown. The space agency will make a clean feed of its extensive eclipse coverage available to the media, he says.

Unlike terrestrial bound broadcasters, there’s no possibility that weather will interfere with NASA’s unique vantage point on the eclipse.

It plans to distribute video from 11 spacecraft, including the International Space Station, high-altitude aircraft and specially equipped balloons, as part of its feed, he says.

...

The total eclipse exits the continental United States in the Carolinas where Raycom Media stations have a strong presence, says Dennis Milligan, news/content director, at Raycom-owned WBTV Charlotte, N.C.

“We will be at several locations, and I think with the help of our other Raycom stations in the area — Myrtle Beach, Charleston and Columbia, S.C., — we will have plenty of resources to cover the progress of the eclipse,” he says.

Quote:

[ABC] will on Monday, August 21, break into regularly scheduled programming at 1 p.m. Eastern to present a two-hour special, “The Great American Eclipse,” that follows what is expected to be the first total solar eclipse visible in America in 38 years. David Muir, anchor of ABC’s “World News Tonight,” will lead the proceedings.

An ABC News team of reporters will report from viewing parties and landmarks in the “path of totality,” and interview spectators. Viewers will be able to submit photos and videos to ABC for inclusion in the special and on ABC News’ social media platforms.

Muir will lead coverage from Charleston, SC with Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee in Nashville, TN and Meteorologist Rob Marciano in Lincoln City, OR. A team of reporters will include Chief Business and Economics Correspondent Rebecca Jarvis, Senior National Correspondent Matt Gutman, “The View” Co-Host and ABC News Correspondent Sara Haines, and Correspondents David Kerley, Clayton Sandell, Nick Watt, Eva Pilgrim, T.J. Holmes and Adrienne Bankert.

...

ABC NewsOne, the affiliate news service of ABC News, will offer coverage from both East and West Coasts with ABC News Correspondents Marci Gonzalez and Maggie Rulli for more than 200 ABC affiliates and news partners.

Starting at 6:00AM EST on Monday, August 21 and sponsored by DISH and Jeep, The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore and Stephanie Abrams will broadcast live from Madras, OR and Carbondale, IL to kick off the day-of coverage on the network’s signature morning show AMHQ. Cantore and Abrams will anchor live coverage of the eclipse as it crosses the country over the course of the day. In the days leading up to the eclipse, The Weather Channel will air an “Official Countdown to The Total Solar Eclipse” presented by DISH.
 
Additional meteorologists will report live from each time zone across the country and along the eclipse’s path of totality, immersing viewers in the once-in-a-lifetime experience. In partnership with Royal Caribbean, the network will broadcast live from the Total Eclipse Cruise in the Atlantic, to show viewers at home the totality of the eclipse from sea. Experts at The Weather Channel’s studio headquarters will also drive up-to-the-minute weather forecasting to show how current weather conditions, such as cloud density and rain, might impact eclipse visibility across the country.
 
The broadcast locations include:
  • Stephanie Abrams in Madras, OR
  • Alex Wilson and Chris Bruin in Jackson Hole, WY
  • Jim Cantore and Reynolds Wolf at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL
  • Maria LaRosa at Clemson University in Clemson, SC
  • Jen Carfagno in Nashville, TN
  • Mike Seidel driving throughout the Southeast
  • Dave Malkoff from the Royal Caribbean Total Eclipse Cruise
Additional live content will be pulled from telescopes, cameras, and with live-hits from viewers at home, to help observers both in and outside of the path get their own perfect view of the eclipse. From highlighting user-generated social media content, to dialing people in via Skype calls, The Weather Channel’s viewers will be able to connect with experts and Americans across the country to see how they are marking this momentous occasion.

I think this is a given, but NASA has been promoting this for several months.  I'm sure they will have some feeds up, probably AMC-15 (105W).

I just read on social media that a certain uplink company is providing NASA with 8 trucks that will be positioned along the eclipse path.

Here are some more coverage plans.

https://www.nbcumv.com/news/nbc-news-and-msnbc-air-special-coverage-historic-2017-eclipse-sweeps-over-nation-august-21?network=33130

Quote:
As the eclipse sweeps over the nation, NBC News and MSNBC will feature correspondents on the ground in key locations: Tom Costello will join Al Roker in Charleston, S.C., Kerry Sanders and Jacob Soboroff will be stationed in Madras, Ore., Mariana Atencio will be on the ground in Carbondale, Ill., and Gadi Schwartz will report from Casper, Wyo. for NBC News’ Snapchat show “Stay Tuned."


http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/106504/tegna-weather-ch-join-on-eclipse-coverage

Quote:

All Tegna stations, regardless if they are in the direct path of the eclipse, will have dedicated and enhanced coverage on-air, on their website and mobile apps. Content includes interactive guides to the eclipse, information on how to take the best pictures, a ZIP code finder to see how close you are to the path, information about local events, the science and history behind the eclipse and more.

In addition, Tegna will offer a continuous live stream of the eclipse from coast to coast on station’s Facebook feeds.

Tegna’s eclipse markets will also provide live, wall-to-wall coverage and analysis across platforms on Aug. 21. In addition to sharing content across Tegna’s markets and covering the impact the eclipse will have on tourism, traffic, cell service and other emergency responses, highlights of local coverage will include:

  • KGW will be the first Tegna market in the path of the eclipse. KGW will be the only local crew on a plane in the Pacific Ocean to get exclusive views of the eclipse as it first appears. The station will be live beginning at 4:30 am (local time) and on-air for at least eight hours.
  • KTVB will produce a two-hour television special from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (local time) from Weiser, Idaho, where thousands are expected to gather to catch Idaho’s first view of the eclipse. KTVB, the Western Idaho Fair and the Idaho Lottery are also teaming up to throw a party, Total Eclipse of the Fair, and special broadcast at the Western Idaho Fair grandstand stage.
  • KSDK will be live in Carbondale, Ill., at a NASA official viewing location. This is where the eclipse will occur for the longest duration, two minutes and 40 seconds. It will be one of more than a half dozen locations where KSDK will have live coverage. KSDK is also partnering with local organizations to create unique, shareable content across their digital and social platforms. In addition, KSDK is teaming with Tegna’s KUSA in Denver to have special coverage of a flight from Denver to St. Louis during the eclipse.
  • WBIR coverage will be included on the #EclipseLive Facebook Live stream at 2 p.m. ET. WBIR’s live coverage will begin at noon ET and run until the evening news.

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!
