    Are the DTH antennas bidirectional?

    Do the DTH antennas at home just receive signals from satellites or can they send data to antennas?

    It depends on the system. DirecTV & Dish are one way (receive only); while DTH ISP providers like HughesNet & WildBlue for example are bidirectional.

    DTH=Direct to Home

    It's a synonymous term used to describe an individual dish antenna servicing one dwelling: Direct to Home (DTH).

    Oh well. That describes virtually all residential antennas including broadcast TV, HAM, etc.
