it has a KU Band LNB on it so it will work for KU

It looks like the single output ones (the older models had 2 separate outputs for H & V)
if you don't want it I might be able to find a use for it ;)

Yes it looks like a 40" P*

Nice find, first thing you need to do is paint it matt black ;)

Those LNB's were common (In this area/early).

Those are GREAT fixed dish pointed at one satellite, I use mine mostly for Pas 9 @ 58ºw

First thing I did was remove the old LNB and put on an Invacom Universal LNB leaving the feedhorn as its made exactly for the shape of the dish!

3 of my 7 Primestar dishes have these. They are good ones. Here in California, you need to turn the lnb to the right when you go West of AMC 1.

Dish is great for ku band. 40" ones are the best. C-band is not so good. I was only able to get a handful of analog channels at all watchable - none digital but I guess others found a few. The dish is worth it for ku especially during the football or basketball season. Park the dish on SBS 6 or G11 and you will have your money's worth it out of it before the basketball season even starts. Don't get frustrated...but since it's up for sale already..that's too bad...you need to spend the better part of a day with these dishes to see what you can get.
