Found a bunch of Sitka channels among others, but do not know which satellite this is on.
I was using a receiver and  Dish on KU.

Can someone identify the satellite this is on?

Never seen this before

Is it possible you had CBAND and not Ku?

I know the Alaska mux at 139W was reported to be in the process of moving to 115W a week or two ago,
I can't receive it, since 115w doesn't have an east coast footprint. There are a bunch of channels named sitka there on 139W the last time it was ITC.

A problem with the switching?..You are on 115 as majortom mentioned or 139..I can`t see this 115 mux so no clue if they are labeled as Sitka`s but either way my guess is you are on Cband with some bleedover switching issues.

The 115 mux has no mention of Sitka.  No channel names scan in.  There are only Program numbers.

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!
