Here's the transponder and channel's from Aug 1990. (this one was easy to get on top of a bunch of stuff) I have ton's of old satellite publications, catalog's, spec sheets, etc going back to the early to middle 80's. I knew hanging on to these would some day be good for something. A lot of stuff is burried in boxes from years ago. :D

Never knew they had that one, I thought they had a system with a 8'dish or so, missed out on that one. Looks like a Uniden receiver, SQ560 or similar.

Playboy F4, 24... Tvn coming soon, I rented several movies via videopal from them...

I still have a history in my Vc2+ for TVN movies ordered. Still going strong on the original battery since 1991. I think it'll make it till there are no more Vc2+ channels.

In the late 80's there was First Run PPV on F2 and the Zap channels on S2 also.

Used to watch the Tonight Show (Johnny Carson) in the early eighties at 7:00 PM Central unscrambled on one of the Weststars (can't remember which one). Good music from Doc's band where the commercials were supposed to be.

They had a 8 foot dish system with a 930-1430 block downconversion, in the late 80's. They also had two 9 foot systems one with a Uniden 9000 and another with a Memorex (Echostar 8) receiver in the early 90's. I have the catalog ad's for them also.

I'll try to scan more and post it when I have the time to go through some of my stuff.:)

Brings back alot of memories for me. The good old day when the RSN's had their own identity. A friend of mine had a BUD. We used to watch the Boston sports teams all the time and HNIC on CBC. It really sucked when they started "scrambling" these channels.

Cable Video Store-push a button, rent a movie! lol
I remember watching Cable Video store PPV that summer GI was rolling out VC2 plus>
used to leave my system on the channel, around 10am my time it would pop on, stay on until 7-8pm while they tinkered and tested the system. Sometimes go black for a bit, then come back on.
Summer of 88 I think. Still got sev movies on vhs from those days.

:) Wow, I havent seen alot of those sat names since about 1998 when I bought a house that came with a 10' dish and a analog IRD. That's why I'm getting back into FTA, because I miss all those feeds. I remember having to set up all the sats into the box because the acuator arm had a stripped worm gear nut( the new nut was on the kitchen counter). When I got it all set up I had a very good sub on the analog IRD for about 8 months, then it expired. During that 8 months I cut back alot on my expressvu system, and when it was time to renew the C-band I got almost the same package as it had except for the stars movie channels (I still subed to HBO) . After that most of the sats had new names but my box wouldn't let you add new sat names so I had to get used to remebering the old short forms for the new sat names.
