    C band on 90 cm dish experiment

    Yeah it is a very sturdy dish. In long run will probably just use it as a ku experiment dish to hit the far out birds.

    C band on 90 cm dish experiment

    Hey guys. Picked up a 90cm Channel Master dish and a mounting stand. Also got a BSC C band lnb. The dish measures 36.5 wide by 39 inches tall so it is a hair over 90cm. More like 91 cm wide and maybe equivilent to a round 95cm dish with the size. Anyhow I am going to test and see...

    What do you guys think of this BUD here?

    So I talked to a local communication station and the engineer and he said I can have this dish as well as several others! He also is going to give me some sort of spectrum anylizer he said he no longer needs. He was actually happy he could help. I just need to find a couple friends to help...

    Found a 12 foot dish

    Well as for wild feeds are they still booming on c band or is it just mostly the 24/7 stuff. I am only interested in wild feeds and wild feed sports,news,and tv shows being sent to the station unscrambled. If they are all on ku only and not much on c band I dont need it.

    Found a 12 foot dish

    A guy down the road has a 12 ft c band dish probably 30 years old. It is an echostar model. At first I was thinking it was a 10 footer, but using my wingspan which is about 70 inches I stood stretched out and barely was able to touch the side and then the center of dish. I had no tape...

    Thinking of setting up a BUD but have some questions

    Ok here it is. I am thinking of getting a BUD. I had one back years ago. The radio station here has some not in use and I was wondering if it is worth it for what I am looking for. I currently have a 90cm ku dish scanning 87 to 125. Here are my questions. 1. How many wild feeds or...

    Would a 12 footer look good out here?

    No. It doesnt look like it motor is on it. I looked it up on google and here is a pic. It is a pretty dish though.

    Would a 12 footer look good out here?

    Nice setup. Is that a 10 footer and a 3 footer? I would love that setup. I have a 39" on the way and would look good next to a 10 or a 12, or if I can pick up that 14 footer at the radio station.

    Would a 12 footer look good out here?

    Thanks for the info. A local radio station has a 14 ft or so mesh dish in new looking shape pointing north and low so I know it is not being used. Idk how I would be able to pick that sucker up to mount.

    Would a 12 footer look good out here?

    I bought my rg6 from Walmart. It is quad shielded. I paid $45 for 2 seperate 75 ft runs and combined them with 2 barrels from Lowes, the 3ghz ones. I figure I dont have to order c band ribbon cable, i can buy motor wire from lowes cant I?

    Would a 12 footer look good out here?

    I have my current ku band dish out here approximately 150 ft from the house to clear the big trees covering 87 to 125, I cant put it anywhere else and was wondering if you guys think this would be a good idea to put a BUD out here? I know the neighborhood would be curious what I am doing. Lol...
