TN.Frank Posted September 10, 2014 Share Posted September 10, 2014 I have an old DirectTV dish that I'm not using anymore. It's one of the newer ones with the three nubs on it(Multi Satellite IIRC) and I wonder with it and my RTL-SDR dongle and a coax adapter can I wire it up and do something with it? I'll have to mount it onto a tripod and I'll need to add connector ends to the cables coming out of the board that's mounted on the dish. I guess I'd have to run the 4 coax wires into a spliter and bring it down to a single coax wire that I can hook to my coax adapter then I'd plug that into my dongle but what to do from there?? What freq. range would I need to look at and what can I pick up with a dish like this? Has anyone else messed around with and hacked an old DirectTV dish and if so is there any good web sites with info on what to do and how to do it. Anyway, thanks in advance.
