C-BAND (TV) TRANSMISSION CHANGE Election Night Broadcast ONLY November
08:

On November 08 for our Election Night Broadcast we will be using a
different slot on the same C-band satellite, for this one broadcast only.

All other parameters for the Election Night Broadcast will be
identical to the regular daily show transmission.

We have booked two test windows on the same space for testing:
November 01 1545-1600ET
November 08 1545-1600ET

The new slot is the UPPER slot of the same transponder, so the only
parameter which needs to change is Downlink Frequency : 4169.00 :

1900-2359 ET = 7:00pm-11:59pm ET
