    Small project? Can you even buy a satellite for less than a quarter of a billion dollars these days?

    Nope, satellites pointed to other satellites.

    Can't wait to see this explained.
    How is your satellite dish going to communicate with your other satellite dish without them pointing directly at each other?
    And with all kinds of obstructions what would be the point?
    Satellite to Satellite is how you get your Dish and Directv service.
    Cable too.

    You would also probably need a license from the FCC to transmit any radio frequency... It could not interfere with any ground base service such as fire, police, radio, TV, business band, ETC
    You also need to spell out the difference between SATELLITE and satellite dishes..

    Oh ... a point to point GROUND network.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_Canopy

    Call it the right thing and it is easy to understand.
    Why you asked the question in a FTA satellite forum is harder to understand.

    Not all dishes are satellite dishes. Satellite dishes are not satellites, they are dishes.

    LNB is Low Noise Block Feed It receives the signal and sends it to the receiver.
    Wikipedia search for LNB. "A low-noise block downconverter (LNB) is the receiving device mounted on satellite dishes used for satellite TV reception.." If you want to learn more the article is 11 pages long.

    The good news is that if one points two receive only dishes at each other it doesn't violate any FCC rules. :D
