G16 - 99G for Galaxy, a series of Panamsat communications satellites. Panamsat is now owned by Intelsat, the "IA" owners. G16 is located at 99 degrees west longitude and is a primary Hughes satellite, replacing G4R in the summer of 2006.
The footprint map for G16 is shown below. All footprint maps have to be considered as approximate. .74 meter dishes need at least a 46 dBW signal for reception. The map indicates that 46dBW can be achieved over a wide portion of North America, including southern Alaska, but there is no known actual testing of the limits at the time of this writing (Sept, 2006).
