The Cheyenne Digital Broadcast Center is the cornerstone of EchoStar Satellite L.L.C. and DISH Network™. Located on a 50-acre site in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the clear skies and 6,000-foot altitude make it an ideal location to receive and transmit programming signals. The 160,941 square foot state-of-the-art facility receives, processes, and transmits these signals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to its satellite fleet orbiting 22,250 miles above the Earth in the Clarke Belt. The Cheyenne facility employs approximately 275 people. It is a growing, evolving facility, more than doubling in size during its first four years. Over a dozen antennas for receiving and transmitting signals have been added since it began operation. Since 2004, a new storage building and a new power plant building have been constructed. These new facilities also added about 15,000 square feet of office area to meet continuing needs.
