i don't get it,Pardon me for reviving a dead thread, but as far as I know a regular Ku LNB feedhorn would've cost somewhere in between $188 and $300, but I'm not sure how much a regular Ku dish would've cost?
well what were the UPN stations in which the syndicated shows you've mentioned were on back in '98? (Diff'rent Strokes, What's Happening?, The Ropers)
Well I will get to that later (I've still got many videos of commercial breaks I'll have to get through first), the coins I've cashed in was approximately $846, along with the money I saved which was approximately $600 (total $1406.16), that might be well enough for a C-Band dish ($1000), but it will require a very huge investment. But If I want to save on it, the Ku dish was the cheapest alternative. Though I was born in June that year, a lot of people my age (21 years old) around that time would be saving up on those Big Giant C-Band dishes. It was for certain people that'll want to see what they couldn't get on cable or minidish systems (like network feeds and backhauls). Though no one at 21, owns a house or a car (except for certain college graduates).didn't the Paramount Stations Group (PSG) use a Ku-Band transponder for their news feeds and backhauls? I'm just curious since I know that Chris-Craft/United Television used GSTAR4 for their news feeds.
