FWIW, I saw this in today's SkyReport
With only 22,606 customers nationwide, I can see how it isn't profitable to keep going.
My first sat job was installing C-band dishes in 1987...
There may be more to the story. Other places have stated that NPS may simply be looking to get out of the C-Band business, as their competitors have stated there isn't an issue with staying in the C-Band business.
the truth is nps is in bed with Charlie and now he wants a ring

May my 12 foot Paraclipse rest in peace. Used it from 1978 until 2003.
R.I.P. you Princes of the Sky, but keep looking up, for one day you may receive a signal from the stars.
Used mine from 1993 to 2000. Installed it myself. The best years I ever had scanning the sky. RIP
You take pictures like my mom....subject off centered and cropped at the edges. She'll take pictures of landmark buildings and she'll cut the top off of the roof or steeple or whatever, but she'll get plenty of ground below the base of the building. Or vice versa. Cut the bottom off, but get plenty of empty sky.
My 12 foot lived until the 2004 hurricanes: Charley, Frances and Jeanne. It then turned into braces for my garage door. (Before the storms.)
Lighten up. The picture was taken for a computer wallpaper. Having the sky and trees was intentional.
Looks like a head banger while cutting the grass.
It wasn't to bad, the picture was taken in the grass mowing position. This is also an older photo, before I converted it to a Horizon to Horizon mount and tripod mount for the LNB.
My favorite things watched on it were the sports back hauls and Canadian Networks.
My old 10' Unimesh Perf Minnesota dish. I used it for both C and KU band from about 1989 to 1996, when I moved to Florida. The last time I drove by the house, last September it was still there. It's a bit up in the air which made for interesting times clearing snow off the dish. This was my first installation when I got into the satelllite business.
Some interesting installs that I did over the years: http://www.pbase.com/rking401/satellite_installs&page=all
So is there anything left on C-Band that isn't encrypted? Can you still order channels?
I always thought CB was better, you were getting the uncompressed signals directly from the network, you could get almost every channel available, and you didn't have to worry about whether or not your provider was going to carry the channel, no "middle man".
With all of these carriage disagreements lately, it would be kind of nice if we could go back to those days.
does that have anything to do with th ku band on the big sats. the ones that are combined with the c band?
They are giving these dishes away down here in San Antone. Are they still usefull for C band FTA?
We'll, there's always Ku-Band.
Will this affect digital networks (ie. Retro Television Network and This TV) and the broadcast stations that carry them?
Heck yeah... All 6 major networks, PBS HD, Nasa, lots of Sports feeds, News channels... there is a lot to watch. Most of it in HD if you have the right receiver. When something important happens, like the earthquake in Haiti, it was on FTA live before anywhere. If you can swing the price of a receiver, grab one of those free dishes. I have a 6'er and a 10'er.
wow!that is a very bis satllite dish the dish at my house is smaller then that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
