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)
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.
