    Unusual hardware, but a good find??

    Thanks. I'm going to gather all of the part numbers and find out what I can about these goodies. Unless I'm mistaken, the dish was aimed at 97W (Galaxy 19?). I may try for another one a few miles away, but that may be greedy ;)

    Unusual hardware, but a good find??

    Finally! After a number of scheduling conflicts and weather events, I finally got my hands on some of the goods. Here are a few pics. First the dish: It is indeed a 6' (1.8m) Prodelin. Let me tell you, it looks much smaller from the ground! The non-pen mount will be a project for...

    Unusual hardware, but a good find??

    Since I haven't actually made off with the goods yet, I've been hesitant to spill the beans. We are talking about General Motors, apparently enterprise-wide. This was connected with their Project Genesis system, part of which was used for training. The word is, as of September 15, they were...

    Free Sample of the Week - Satellite AV - Ends 9.23.2009

    It was very late in 1978 or early 1979. My grandfather had a C-Band very BUD installed at his home deep in the mountains of Virginia. I watched an episode of "Candid Candid Camera" on, if I'm not mistaken, HBO. I wanted one immediately, but it would have to wait, as I was only 15.

    Unusual hardware, but a good find??

    I can't imagine what this thing would cost when originally installed! It does indeed have the RX/TX LNBF installed. Once I have pulled the equipment, I can provide more info about possible sources, but I want to get my hands on it first. Let's just say that there should be a lot of these...

    Unusual hardware, but a good find??

    I do IT support for a number of businesses in my area including an auto dealership. The dealership had a satellite system set up to communicate with corporate primarily for training. The system is no longer being used and they have been told by corporate to dumpster the equipment. I told them...

    Contest: Enter to Win a Mini BUD from Satellite AV

    I would visit my relatives deep in the mountains of Southwestern Virginia. My cousin and I would catch crawdads (crayfish for those of you in other parts) from the creek, hike through the hills, and watch out for bears. I would think about what the future held, like satellite dishes that...

    Anyone have a Captain 8000hd receiver?

    I saw similar discussions, but never saw anyone say they had actually pulled that off. Anyone else see anything that confirms with any certainty that it could be done?

    Neusat HD 9000 Receiver Review

    Stogie, that $100 is a sweet deal! That explains my earlier issue with it hanging on blind scans of AMC1. For some reason I didn't put 2 and 2 together. I agree. The PQ for PBS HD looks wonderful. I haven't tried for any 4:2:0 HD feeds yet. If you can overlook its many issues, it...
