    A friend of mine told me he was given this antenna for free and wants to know what he can do on C-Band. What is his best option? What does he needs to receive C-Band? Also what are the options for KU and what does he needs? The antenna seems to have been used for data transmission. :eeek

    I have lost a lot of channels at SES-6, basically everyday at least one channel is gone. Four months ago, when NSS-806 was still there, there were more than 220 channels.
