    ~$500 is probably a lot rich for those who are curious about lightning damage.

    Especially when you can get a new LNB for only $90

    That's not a bad price considering the engineering that went into it, the production and tooling costs to make it and maybe they will produce 10K of them in it's lifetime? Just a guess.

    Not like a smartphone where 10 million is a minimum quantity.

    That may well be, but it is still a lot of money for a person to spend to see if the LNB was damaged.

    I think the answer to the original question seems to be: Sure, but it might cost you a lot of money.
