And to think I had my C-band satellite system disassembled hauled off when I moved 15 years ago. I could have taken it with me and reused it. For awhile there in the 1990s it seemed like there was nothing viewable on C-band because it all went to scrambled, other than the various newsfeeds which randomly popped up.

The C-band did come in handy during the 1991 gulf war. Raw newsfeeds were watchable on multiple channels.

I am interested in a 3 foot dish FTA system. They're pretty cheap and apparently only Galaxy 19 has a lot of things to watch, so a rotator doesn't seem to be worth the extra cost.
