The changeover from Echostar 7 to Echostar 14 at the 119W satellite position has continued to whack some US Dish Network clients with a big stick, eliminating access to many channels across much of Mexico, and now shifting local South Florida channels to spot beams.
Since Dish Network has shifted these local channels to spot beams, and the spot beam is so narrow (by design) that it is not received in Yucatan, then the only practical ways to get ABC, NBC, CBS, & Fox is to make some changes proposed in the full article.
For purely scientific reasons, we’d love for people from around North America report their locations, dish size, and 119W signal strengths by transponder number as things change over the next few weeks.
