What is C Band & KU Band?

  • C-Band:   Frequencies between 3.700 – 4.200 GHz are on C-Band and require a satellite dish 7.5′ (2.25m) or larger.
  • Ku-Band:  Frequencies between 10.700-12.750 GHz are on Ku-Band.  Most Ku-Band satellites require a 30″ dish or larger.  To verify what size dish you will need, check the footprint of the satellite for your area or click here!
