Your friend should ask around with local satellite equipment dealers. No one is better qualified to say exactly which channels he can get and exactly what he needs to get them.

You can noodle around on Lyngsat with footprint maps and such, but why guess when you can get the right answer right away?
Yes, FTABlog is active again. Why do you ask?

Like FTAmichael said, lyngsat.com is your best bet, great site updated often, will tell you exactly what channels are available on which sat and what size dish you need to get them

I'm new to fta and I'm looking for general advice on equipment satellite and so forth. I would like a DVR box that does FTA and OTA. I have an old C band dish. I live in southern MI. Not sure what the best setup would be.

I put this up not so much for the OP but for all of those that only know about Lyngsat.
