They're currently under flood warnings, which means it's pretty bad.

It's dry, but unlike like Southern Texas where a little squall causes mass drownings.


  I've often wondered if Hughes chooses their gateway locations for their clear weather? 

 

  If so, is there one in El Paso, Texas?


Yep, but only for the ES17 satellite, not the ES19, so primarily Gen4 customers.  

 

They they may base them on the weather they get, though there are a few in places that can get heavy precipitation.  There's one in Seattle.

While weather has something to do with it, you'll notice they're basically laid out in a matrix for J2.

I used to have GoogleMap image with pins for the locations, which would really show that, but can't find it.

  I  applied for an "early out' by going to a computer programming school.  They said the were full, but if I made an  'A+' on  the test I could attend anyway   Well, I didn't, and finished out my 2 year enlistment.  I found it funny that later I became a computer programmer.

 

  When I got out in 1969, I started getting letters from everywhere asking me to join their law enforcement agency, starting at a high rank, and waiving my attendance of any the required law enforcement schools or academies.  My brief experience as a MP convinced me, that I would never take a job in law enforcement ever.

I wonder if they're all west of the Mississippi because the ES17 provided service primarily in the east, and they decided to keep it the same for the ES19, as well as the Gateways that can be used for both.

One meal at the Ft. Gordon Waffle House would be enough for me to drop out of MP school.

  LOL.  We used to call Augusta  Discusta.  No bars, one movie theater that was closed, and one house of ill repute that was off limits. 

 

  I attended a DCS school in Augusta later.  Boy, had that place changed,  fine restaurants, bars, theaters, and beautiful Georgia peaches everywhere.
