The c-Band covers the frequency-range between 3,6 and 4,2 GHz. The Ku-band 
runs (in Europe) from 10,7 to 12,75 GHz. For each band you need a suitable 
LNB and feed. DTH-transmmisons in Europe use the Ku-band, but also the 
c-band is used by arabic countries, Africa and Russia. Much more you will 
find the c-band in Asia and the Americas. But also here the Ku-band becomes 
popular, because dishes are a lot smaller then c-band antennas.
