Celia, David, and Steve,

Earlier today, Robb Kambic sent you a note explaining that the WSI feed
had failed because of a power bus failure on the satellite that WSI was
using to send their data.  He also noted that we were working on
resetting the receiver and aligning the dish to point at the new
satellite that WSI is using (GE-1).

We set the receiver and tried to align the dish this afternoon.  As
Robb pointed out in his email, "the new satellite alignment might have
obstacles blocking the its path".  We believe that this is, in fact,
the case.  Our dish is located very close to the east wall here at
FL-4.  It appears that GE-1's position (103 W longitude) is just far
enough west that our building obstructs our view.  We will check this
again tomorrow, but it doesn't look good.  If it is determined that the
building is an obstacle, folks will have to decide if it is worth
moving the dish, or if it is cheaper to unsubscribe from the WSI
service.

Sorry for the bad news...

Tom Yoksas
