We welcome all hams interested in amateur
The best reception of WR6TV is on 3.4
This signal is on 24/7. This may sound complicated and
to do, but it is not. We use old used analog C
receivers with LNB's (low noise block convertor) that we
purchased on eBAY
or other web sites, mounted on old Directv or Dishnet dish
Some of these receivers go for as little a 99 cent plus
to look for are Pansat KR600, Microtek KR600, Standard MT620,
Standard MT-630B, Aspen-Eagle
AE4800A,Drake ESR1255 and others. I have paid anywhere from 1
to 120 dollars
for a receiver. The most important thing is that they
to above 1750mhz as their I.F. tuning range.
The LNB that is mounted on the small dish
horn antenna has a local oscillator of 5150 mhz and to receive
the receiver I.F. will be 5150-3400=1750mhz.
There are a number of C-band LNB's
on eBay or the other web sites for 10 to 30 dollars.
Anyone interested in joining in on the ATV
please contact us on email or on the air on 147.540 simplex,

107.2 in the Redding area. I have loaner receivers available
if you want
to give us a try.
