There's many people in Michigan who use FTA satellite (the Satellite Guys board is based in Mich, in fact) so why not make a portion of the forum for FTA Sat?

I must confess - I'm unfamiliar with free-to-air satellite; please provide a brief summary of what it is.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah it's pretty neat. I've never managed to get it working as of yet but I still want to keep trying. And I think it would be nice to discuss it with other people in the Michigan area, so that's why I think it deserves its own part on the buzzboard.

Seems like it would be very appropriate for the DX and Engineering forum. I had an uncle who used to watch Russian television from K band or X band. He was a trip, knew more about world politics in the middle of the Upper Peninsula than anyone I knew.

Thing is, many DXers don't do FTA and vice versa, so it may be better to have it separated.
