I am curious how things are coming along with Phase 3 Express (P3E) as the
current official websites don't tell me much. The last bit of updates seem
to be from 2005 with an expected launch date of 2007 - 2008 which was 2 - 3
years ago. Since there's no info about it being active I'm guessing P3E
hasn't be launched yet.

The reason I'm asking is because I came across 2 Dish Network dishes that a
friend had sitting in his junk room that he acquired from the previous owner
of his home. One is a smaller dish labeled Dish 500 which I'm guessing is a
Ku-Band dish and a larger one labeled Dish Plus which I'm assuming is a
C-band dish. As you probably have guessed I want to use these for AMSAT work
and I don't know much about parabolic dishes so all I have are guesses for
what bands they work on so if anyone can point me in the right direction to
figure this out please do.
