5781-5783 HDRSN (presumably altenate channels for the RSNs above.)

The following channels were removed from tp 13 at 61.5°. (this transponder became a spot beam transponder today)

499 P*layboy is now available to subscribers on tp 4 at 119°. This is a mirror of channel 497 but it gives those with newer receivers that are hooked up to broadband or phone line the ability to subscribe to the channel by using the remote control.

Due to the re-use of channel numbers, the uplink reports on the DBS discussion boards were confusing. For this reason all the locals in the channel ranges will be listed. Some of the following local markets have been uplinked for a while. NONE WERE REMOVED. This was just a "glitch" in the programs JohnH and DigiBlur use to automate their reports.
