I bought one and have been using it for about a year. It works great for
NASA TV. I get a very high S/N picture. Some of the other foreign TV
stations using GE-2 are somewhat noisy. When US networks randomly use
some of the transponders on GE-2 they also have very good signals. I guess
the foreign stations are not using as much uplink power.
