With modern servomechanism technology, the problem should definitely be
solvable. It doesn't even sound like an especially tough problem. However, I
think there may be some advances in receiving antennas and receivers that
might make the dish unnecessary. I don't follow this area of electrical
engineering, so I don't know this to be the case, I just think it might be.
