    C-Band Sat

    Is there any market for these old relics? Mine works just fine, just don't have a need anymore.

    Isn't that one of those huge Sat dishes? The ones that were popular before Direct TV and Dish. If so use it as a huge saucer for sledding.

    It was the only dish in town 20 years ago. I have used it as recently as 2 years ago to tune in ISU football/basketball games that were not made available to the local market. It does come with a HDTV receiver.

    Hey lenny, it would make a great snow saucer, if it wasn't mesh.

    My mother was one of the last C-Band subscribers. One of the satellites was beginning to wander out of orbit at which point they told her they weren't launching a replacement.

    Her option was to make due with half the channels or upgrade to digital.

    The equipment is worthless. However, the fiberglass dishes make great fish ponds.
