These pages are intended to assist mobile uplink operators and are for reference only.

Large changes are coming soonATT1A.gif (301 bytes)
These changes will include a new and improved satellite arc diagram.


I am no longer going to provide transponder programming content.   Instead I'll link you to some of the best websites for that information.
Since this is a labor of love and not profit, I just can't afford the time and effort needed to create and update the tables on a regular basis.
ATT6.gif (513 bytes) Don't get your shorts in a wad.
There are alternative sources for this information and I will provide you with links.
These sites get paid to do this sort of thing and they do a good job of it.
I recommend both Lyngsat and SatcoDX.  Both of these sites are comprehensive and well maintained.


Any questions may be sent to me at:

theuplinker@earthlink.net
postmaster@theuplinker.com

 I will eventually post viable identifier channels, beacon frequencies and/or spectrum plots of each satellite.

21st-Satellite.com USA C-Band satellite listings
Lyngemark Satellite Charts A comprehensive and well maintained satellite and program listing
Orbit Online Communication Corp. A link to their C-band charts
SatcoDX One of the best and most frequently updated sites - world-wide coverage
Satellite Man's - Jimmy's Mainly North American C-Band listings
South Scanner Satellite Services Very comprehensive listings in a simple format
Superstar Fairly comprehensive, small and difficult to read though

I will still have the satellite arc, but it will be combined with frequency charts.
I'm just doing away with the present programming pages.

PanAmSat satellite systems only! Sun outage calculator.
For the best results obtain the closest latitude and longitude figures for your location.
Any decent map program should give you figures for latitude and longitude that will be close enough for your purpose.
click - PANAMSAT SUN OUTAGES - here
Using this information you can also figure outages on adjacent birds by extrapolating from the timing information on any individual PanAmSat satellite.
Remember that sun outages move from east to west relative to the satellite being effected, but that the ground effect moves from west to east for any given satellite.
If your unsure whether or not you are experiencing a sun outage problem there is a very easy way to find out if there is no cloud cover in your area during the problem period.
Go out and look at your dish.  If you are experiencing a sun outage the shadow of the feed horn will be near the exact center of the dish.
For rectangular offsat dishes the shadow will be at the center of the bottom edge of the dish.

To avoid printing the background and images:
Access your browsers properties window.  Choose the advanced options and change your print settings so that the background and images are not printed.
This way you won't use an entire black ink cartridge.
