1.2 meter dishes for C-band work on a few satellites for analog, not very well for digital. Using an antenna that small is more of a fun experiment than a serious means of receiving C-band.

6 foot? why yes, I am.

Let's see if any of the instigators will correct me, but...

I read all the miniBUD threads, above.
They were a lot of fun.
In the end, one of the major proponents moved to a Fortec Star 6' (180cm)
To motorize it, you could use the modest-priced H-180 motor and Vbox controller.
The dual band LNBF seemed to be the icing on the cake for C and Ku.

I haven't heard anyone criticize this lash-up other than the old timers with their 8', 10', and 12' dishes who've been running since the 80's... :)
So, if there really is a down side, it's not been well presented.

Also, I think anyone discussing this, should make clear whether they are interested in analog or the digital transmissions.
I myself, would not be interested in going analog.
So, if that's a problem, it should be made known.

You know that gets me thinking. All of the analog feeds that exisit on C-band....how much longer will they be around? I've always thought about that. Will they be around for a while or will they all end up in DVB one day? Including the syndication feeds.

some of the syndicated feeds are going digital but I think analog might be around for a few more years
