sheepy2 How much is a satellite dish worth? How about FREE?

I don't know too many people that use true satellite dishes anymore, but I am about to get rid of a large (maybe 12' across) motorized satellite dish, a smaller (maybe 4' across) stationary dish, and a couple satellite tuners with remotes. What should I ask for this, and where should I attempt to sell it?

with most satellite dishes today being no bigger than mama cass' cereal bowl, i wouldn't think you could get very much at all, shadman.

This is a different type of dish, and uses a different type of satellite service. Cheaper than DISH with about 10 times the number of channels.

They are somewhat obsolete now. Best used at a camp or out in the boondocks somewhere. My family has been using satellite TV since I was young, because the only alternative in their area was Kingwood Cable, which is expensive and, ummmm, not good. LOL! I'm going to be updating and selling my mother's house, so I am going to get rid of the satellite dishes and plant palm trees where they were!

Is the big dish solid or one of the "mesh" type?

By the way KW Cable is now Cebridge Connections, still expensive but they are getting a little better as far as service goes.

ShadMan - Have had a 10' Mesh C-Band dish in my back yard for @ 18 years and even upgraded to a HDTV receiver @ 3 years ago. Finally gave in last year and changed over to DISH because the cost of C-Band programming was getting so expensive. (Do miss the BIG dish when it rains hard) As the number of C-band customers has dropped over the last years the cost of service/programming has gone up and up and up. Plus C-Band is losing alot of the premium channels.
The only place I have seen a market for used C-band equipment is on Ebay.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions I might be able to help with

If it was solid I'd take it off your hands. A buddy of mine made a sweet little gazebo out of one.
