We suggest that purchase a Traxis brand Free To Air Satellite Receiver, Model Number DBS 3500.  Theses units are available for under $80.00 from DMS International.  CLICK HERE  Remember, you will need a small satellite dish and a LNB.  While YUSA can not offer technical support, many Dish Network or DIRECTV installers are able to install Free To Air receivers.  CLICK HERE for Traxis DBS 3500 Software.


What is the FREE TO AIR SATELLITE service?

FREE TO AIR SATELLITE is an all new digital satellite service, that is quickly taking the place of the old out dated analog C-Band system!  As the name implies, there are literarily thousands of Television and Radio Channels available for FREE; with many more new Channels being added each month!  You can purchase an easy to install and easy to operate complete system for a one time charge of about $199.00!  Remember, you will never ever have to pay a monthly subscription fee!  You must have a FREE TO AIR RECEIVER, so CLICK HERE to order your system NOW!  CLICK HERE for Traxis DBS 3500 Software.

Can I combine a FREE TO AIR satellite receiver with my present C/KU Band receiver or with my 4DTV receiver and Dish?

YES, YES, YES!  Just do the following:

1.   Order ONLY a FREE TO AIR satellite receiver.

2.   Purchase two (2) inexpensive “high frequency splitters” (950-1450 MHz or better), and one (1) “RF   selector switch” from any Radio Shack Store.

3.   Split both the C and KU feeds that come from your satellite dish, sending one set of signals back to your C-Band or 4DTV Receiver.

4.   Run the other set of signals into the “selector switch”.  Take the output of the “selector switch” and connect it to your new FREE TO AIR Receiver.  Since the FREE TO AIR Receiver has only one input, use the “selector switch” to choose between C and KU Band signals.

5.   Connect your new FREE TO AIR Receiver to the auxiliary input of your television set.

6.   Use your existing C/KU Band or 4DTV receiver to choose between vertical & horizontal polarization.  You will also use your receiver to select a satellite and to move your  dish.  You can then enjoy either C/KU Band or FREE TO AIR programs by switching between the “main” and “auxiliary” inputs on your television set!

NOTE:  If you have only a C or only a KU Band system, then you will only need one (1) “high frequency splitter”; and you will NOT need the “selector switch”

DISH Network and DIRECT TV almost always use freelance contractors to install their systems.  Most of these individuals are capable and willing to install your new FREE TO AIR System for a modest fee. 

If this doesn't make sense to you, ask your local satellite expert for help. It is well worth the effort.


C-Band (Big) Analog Satellite Dishes

Our C-Band Satellite service is not available at this time.  Satellite listeners can easily listen via the new Free to Air Satellite Service.  See Free To Air Digital Satellite.
