C-Band Remembered by Bob Cooper

April 2007-Atlanta, Ga. (DMS Internationals back yard) Hundreds gathered for an annual satellite TV show and conference, including more than 100 attending for a 20 year reunion of "C-Band Remembered". C-band (3.7-4.2 GHz and in later years often called 'BUD' - Big Ugly Dish) was the fastest growing home grown electronics industry since post WWII's expansion of television; from fewer than 100 'systems' to more than 3,000,000 between 1979 and 1986.
