Seen one of these in a local thrift store for $50. Wondering if it could be modded/reprogrammed for use with FTA? It would be great on my van.

The thing is, that reflector is too small for anything reliable on FTA. Especially, in a mobile application, it would be nothing but a headache.
You would also have to mod it for a proper linear LNBF, etc.
I would pass on that, unless you want to make it fixed and experiment for bragging rights. :)

I passed earlier but could go back. I was curious if it is able to be programmed to rotate to other positions or just at the DISH satellites?
