Depends where you live, how many satellite orbital slots are available from your location, their footprints, and the channels they have on them.

The USA is quite a big colony (sorry, country)

No doubt you can use the 12ft. dish for C-band reception, but I thought B-Mac went out with the introduction of digital transmissions (at least over here in Europe).
Same with the various flavours of Videocipher.

there is little programing left on c-band (network feeds mostly).
b-mac is still used by some of the sports books (hors races)
the dish is o-k ,hughs only made comercial equipment in that vintage
most likely left over head end stuff.

ps: any q's , call the carburetor doctor in vegas
