C BAND ANTENNA
Satellite dishes and satellite television are not a thing of the past. They are still used. In the 1980s, C-band parabolic antennas, generally 3 to 5 m in diameter, and metal mesh, were used for domestic use. They have the advantage that the signal is not lost when it rains. But now they don't offer payment scheduling service like before. It is still used only for free FTA channels, with educational, religious, ethnic programming, or links between companies.
KU BAND ANTENNA
Lately Ku band satellite dishes have been predominant. They work in a higher frequency range, 12 GHz. They are offset antennas, the LNB is not in the center, and they are smaller. They are easier to install; But when there is a storm or heavy rain, the signal may be lost.
