You will find a treasure trove of TVRO information (both technical and non-technical) in these issues of COOP's Satellite Digest from the 'Glory Days' of c band. Get a first hand glimpse into how the pioneers (Steve Birkill, Taylor Howard, Bob Cooper and other engineers) unleashed man's creative spirit and started a billion dollar annual industry from absolutely nothing! Follow their trials and tribulations from the early shaky beginnings of the big dish era just over four decades ago and see how consumer satellite television came into existence.

Since the end of this publication, TVRO has often been declared dead and always wished so by some, but the real glory days for c band may be just around the corner! :wink :grin: :byebye

NOTICE: February 01 1985 issue is missing. If anyone has a copy, we would be grateful if you could forward a scanned copy to us.
