I bet this will be the new Alaskan mux.  Its out of my foot print, but i scanned the Alaskan mux on 139 and its the same number of channels as listed above with the same specs.

Ps.  Nice catch Photoman76

I believe you are correct.
Two of the channels look to be HD and the rest SD, just like the AMC 8 mux.
Eutelsat 115 has good coverage in Alaska.

Well, that will preclude me from ever catching that mux again when it was ITC.  It's way out of my footprint.

For some reason the Satbeams "footprints" is not loading for me. [frown]

Interesting to see that footprint. I actually pick this up here in south central kansas But i would be outside the footprint. I must just barely pick it up.

Check the footprint.  If you are in the eastern half of the US, then you are probably out of the footprint.

darn it!  Too weak to lock (per finding it the other night when I went over Eutel115 West B and couldn't get a lock on a new signal I found at this frequency).   I'm at the outer color band of the footprint and I see a signal there but I can't lock onto it (not enough signal strength)

I bet ACRS will pop up here too if GCI is using this bird.   No new news on the ACRS page about moving sats so I'll have to wait until they post something.

Indeed here in eastern Iowa I can see the signal via a spectrum analyzer but tooooo low in power to give a chance for any thing from a sat receiver.

The best I can do from a second dish opinion is 3.1 db s/n on 3777.5.

This might be a place to put the very fine tweak on the feed position via the dish surface? But I am way to far out of the foot print to  get it with such a little dish. Perhaps with a 30 footer? There is signal in the yard but very very low.

I was kinda hoping the ARCS FTA stuff that was ITC on 139w would jump somewhere that i could get...  Right now, the ARCS is out of my footprint and i could never get it.  If they move to the same bird as the New GCI mux, then oh well, lost that chance.

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!
