At last total I'm up to just under $3000.00. Keep in mind it includes a
closed rack frame, peak power meter, a new Audio DSP Card, a new PHEMT
pre-amp, and a new LNA. The receiver was purchased used for $900 and the
dish was free (cost me $35 for the truck to move it). The $3000 doesn't
include the spectrum analyzer I bought to work on the components. It was
$500 on the surplus market.
