Does anyone have an old 1.2m or 90cm sat dish they want to get rid of? 

Trying to get a 1.2m for a max price of a hundred bucks, would like to check out the 'WWE' feed thats supposidly on Insat5 or something.

Hi there. I looked into this a while back for a friend and it worked out the best option was the cheaper ones on trademe, often they include the c band lnb.

That said, if anyones got one local to me in the Manawatu/Wanganui region then I'd be keen too!

you need to make sure you get a c-band dish. There is a difference between a prime focus dish, and and offset dish. Most Ku band is offset, whereas most c-band is prime focus (as I understand it)

And yes IS5 uplinks wrestling as far as I understand. Fridays during the day I believe.
