Company web page. If you have problems with a Chaparral receiver, check
their "Technical Support" link. It has many, many answers to common
- The SatcoDX pages for North
America. This site shows the channel setup for each satellite in the
sky, and lists the programming on each channel. For The eastern US,
use page 8. For the central US,
use page 7. For the western US,
use page 6. For a list of all
satellites this site covers, click on SatcoDX.
Click on the name of any satellite listed on these pages; it will take
you to a list of every channel on the satellite and the network on that
channel. It also lists the frequency and polarity for that channel,
and information on whether the channel carries a digital or analog signal.
There are also links to the web pages of the companies which lease these
- Satellite Journal International.
This has very detailed news about new satellites and related technology,
but is more than some visitors will need. You can subscribe to an email
version if you like it. For subscription instructions, open one of the
journals and look at the top portion of the journal.
- Robert Smathers'
Satellite Page. This has many links, but is slow to load.
