Of course, the larger the dish, the better the signal, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried this in the ConUS, and if they had any success? From what I've been able to learn from browsing the forums here, religious and international programming is all over Ku-Band, but the fun stuff (wild feeds, things like that) are in the C-Band. I mean, theoretically, signal is signal, and a solid dish should bring that signal in, regardless of its frequency range (at least, until we get talking about waveguides, metallic meshes, things of that nature), so shouldn't reception be possible, though weak?
Right now, I don't have a place of my own, and when I find a job I'll probably be living in an apartment building, so a BUD doesn't look too likely to be in my near future. I'd love to know if getting even some C-Band with a small dish is viable (if not reliable), so I can at least have a chance to play with it before everything goes encrypted or proprietary or something.
