Default Dish Satelites ?

Just wondering, is there a used market for Dish Network Satelites? Two placed on street for garbage pick up near me that look brand new. There fairly big!

Always looking for scrap junk to resell.

Do you know why you don't know if they're worth anything or not? Because they're not. Just like the 5 remotes that came with them.

I have probably removed half a dozen of these from flip houses. I actually called on the first one and told them there was a dish and I dont
need it. They never came to grab it.

I used the adjustable mounting bracket for a LED Barn light!
It is perfect for the 1-1/4" mounting pole on the light.

Yeah they are garbage. I’ve seen the manufacturer of these antennas at trade shows and they throw away brand new ones rather than pay to ship them back after the show.

Holy crap that's amazing! I know damn well there made in China, then shipped here. The hardware alone at Ace Hardware is $10.00 bucks. Those bolts and washers and nuts are not small on the one laying in the street by me.
