It depends on how big the dish is. I don't know anything about Exede but a typical direct TV etc is useful for UHF/SHF dx-ing. I have seen them used for typical Mountain Top DX contests, there I believe we are talking mostly line-of-sight, tropo-"bending" and such. If you have, say, a 10 foot dish I guess it may be useful for moon-bunch. I don't think, but I might be wrong, this is something you put up in a tower as the opening angle is rather narrow with following needed precision in aiming.
I have done very little that pertain to SHF just some short distance with typical door openers you find in department-stores. (You can reach rather long distances with those.)
Just some dime from me. Good luck with your dish and tell me what you decided to do.

Don't know if this is the correct place to post . . . . but
Is there any potential use for a used dish that was once installed for
Exede satellite internet?
