Default Is E2 Dead?

There are rumors flying around on several forums that E2 has died. It was supposed to be moved, but in the process something went wrong. Again, these are only rumors so far.

It has been confirmed. E2 is dead. It won't have much of an impact except on locals for those in AK and HI.

On July 14, 2008, our EchoStar 2 satellite experienced a substantial failure that appears to have rendered the satellite a total loss. EchoStar 2 had been operating from the 148 degree orbital location primarily as a back-up satellite, but had provided local network channel service to Alaska and six other small markets. All programming and other services previously broadcast from EchoStar 2 were restored to Echostar 1, the primary satellite at the 148 degree location, within several hours after the failure. EchoStar 2, which was launched in September 1996, had a book value of approximately $6.4 million as of June 30, 2008.

This was also on there:

On July 15, 2008, our EchoStar 11 satellite was successfully launched into geosynchronous transfer orbit. Following in-orbit testing, EchoStar 11 will be located at the 110 degree orbital location, where it will provide additional high-powered capacity to support expansion of our programming services, including high definition programming.

I'm looking forward to this being up and getting my HD PQ back.
