I think the reason the C-band section is quiet is 2 fold

1) Most people simply do not have room for the huge dishes needed for successful C-band reception.

2) the satellite tv hobby is less popular than it was a few years ago - the number of contributors to forums has fallen off massively over the last 5-10 years. Very few young folk are joining the hobby too.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

55 West is also low on the horizon once you start looking East of the UK, most dish installations would require a horizon type motor system to catch this bird on top of the more usual C band satellites.

I'd add:
3) Spousal approval factor on over 1 meter dishes is complicated....
