Looking at the sample application, they want to know make and model of my dishes. That's a problem for me. Our two dishes came with the property when we bought it 27 years ago(!) from a defunct LPTV station and we don't have any data on them. Is there some way I can identify these from just a picture? Or is there some place on the dish they usually put this info? 

You’ll have to see if you can identify it conclusively.  If you can’t identify the make and model of the dish, you probably (most likely) won’t be able to get a PCN for it.

Frankly, if your dishes are 27 years old I’d be *extremely* suspicious they aren’t 2-degree compliant, in which case you’re not likely going to be able to get them protected (or maybe even registered, though I don’t have a chapter and verse to cite here).

I’m surprised they are working well for you.  Even if they were 2-degree compliant originally, dishes do sag and age over time, and performance can degrade even from sitting there in the weather.

I’d suggest that you post a (<30kB file size) picture of your dish/dishes to the list.  Someone here might recognize it.  Include in your email as much information as possible: 
* Aperture size (diameter across the front side of the dish)
* Number of feed horn supports
* Number of panels/sections on the dish
* Az/El versus polar mount, and what diameter post it’s mounted on
* Feedhorn style/type (circular/single linear/dual-pol linear, C-band only, C- and Ku-band combined, etc.)
* Deice kit (if present)
* Mount style (roof mount; non-penetrating vs. penetrating, or ground-mount into concrete, etc.)
