Additional P3D Launch Coverage on TVRO satellites


I know that the launch is delayed but this info came across my wires this
morning from Curt Swinehart and it gives some additional feed locations that
may be valid tomorrow.  Just add a day.


       Satellite feed Tuesday, November 14, 2000, beginning 7:30 p.m.
   Eastern Standard Time (12:30 a.m. GMT).

       United States Ku-band: Galaxy 10R (Ku-band) transponder 24K; D/L
   frequency = 12180 horizontal; NTSC (525); analog feed. Galaxy 4R
   (C-band) transponder 12; D/L frequency = 3940 vertical; NTSC (525);
   analog feed.

       Americas C-band: PAS-9 (C-band) transponder 8C channel 7; D/L
   frequency = 3840 horizontal; digital feed: SA PowerVu MCPC symbol rate
   27.69 Msym/s, FEC 7/8.

       Asia-Pacific: PAS-2 (C-band) transponder 8C channel 4; D/L
   frequency = 3901 horizontal; digital feed: SA PowerVu MCPC symbol rate
   30.8 Msym/s, FEC 3/4.

       Internet Access:
       Live video coverage of the PAS-1R launch will be available on
   PanAmSat's web site at http://www.panamsat.com

   WHAT: The launch of PanAmSat's PAS-1R Atlantic Ocean Region satellite,
   which will provide broadcast, Internet and data services throughout
   the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.

   WHEN: Tuesday, November 14, 2000, launch window begins at 8:07 p.m.
   Eastern Standard Time (1:07 a.m. GMT on Wednesday, November 15)

   WHERE: Arianespace's launch facility in Kourou, French Guiana.

   WHY: PAS-1R will be PanAmSat's largest, most powerful satellite ever;
   will replace PAS-1, the world's first commercial international
   communications satellite, which was placed into orbit 12 years ago to
   break a global satellite monopoly and launch today's
   multibillion-dollar international satellite services industry; will
   supply more than twice the capacity of PAS-1 and is substantially more
   powerful; will be PanAmSat's 22nd spacecraft worldwide.
