He spent many a weekend at a trades day or other venue proving to people that had never seen this new technology that they could get two dozen channels at their house. The early newspaper ads produced by Channel Master touted that this new technology was priced ” as inexpensive as a compact car. The prices came down as demand rose and the C Band satellite was very popular for many years.
