The last one (in Grand Rapids) looks like a Birdview; if so, aren't they aluminum, not fiberglass?

Here's one; not free, and not 18 feet:

Bridview solid dishes are a single sheet of aluminum which is spun and pushed to form the shape. Birdview dish with the holes are two sheets of aluminum which are "bent" and then welded together. I have one of each here.

This dish in the Tampa, FL area has potential:

Giant 8ft Fiberglass Satellite Dish

(Interesting that none of the suggested uses are "as a satellite dish")

Looks like just the fiberglass dish.  Needs a lot more stuff to turn it into a satellite dish.  Jess out in California

I notice on most Craigslist listings people think that when you're looking for a satellite dish, you must want a DN or D-TV dish. ??? I don't understand why you would want one from Craigslist when I see disconnected ones sitting on people's houses.

I've been looking for a 6' - 7' solid dish for sometime now and can't seem to find any in my neck of the woods. I found a 10' screened dish one mile from my house a couple years ago. Its mounted at an auto salvage yard. The auto salvage yard owner won't let it go because of his grown kids. Seems grandpa (since has passed away) was into FTA big time and the kids have kept it up and mounted for sentimental reasons, even though they don't do anything with FTA satellite. I asked the guy what happened to the satellite equipment and he said its boxed up and in a closet. Same thing as the satellite dish - sentimental reasons............

Yes, but the reflector - especially solid one-piece fiberglass - is the most difficult or expensive part to replicate or replace.

(and I did say "has potential"......) [wink]

This dishes deal just keep on coming in. While I was working on a trailer to get ready for a long road trip to pickup a nice dish my phone rings and a guy three miles away wants to give me his very nice 8 foot mesh dish with motor and mounting pole. This may be a "two dish" week for me. Oh well, guys need stuff!

I told my new neighbor and he just shook his head and walked away. Not my fault that all these dishes just keep "finding" me and following me home. Both of these dishes are models I do not yet have in my collection. I need this stuff!!!

Perhaps I can paint these dishes to look like tress?

Did you buy that ebay SatFinder Systems dish in Nebraska?

I see that the listing was taken down because "the item is no longer available".

My lips are sealed until "what ever I bought" is paid for and loaded on my truck. We do need to work to save all the good big dishes still around. After folks have cut them up and put them in land fills, well it is to late then to get any of them back. I do my part to save all good ones I can find. Some day I will pass them on to other needy people. For now, I hoard all I can get!

I think the $27.000 dish is still looking for a new owner.

I did bring home another 8 foot mesh dish in nice condition today. Also the mounting pole and two metal 10 foot clothes line poles. Big day digging the three poles up. Also got a simple motor controller called Hyterk C/100. It has an east west switch and a display showing counter numbers. No storage. You write down the sat name and display number on a paper on top of the unit. I finally have a nice complete 8 foot mesh C band dish worth setting up.

Next week a road trip for a nice glass 10 foot dish and mount. I think if I get enough free clothes line poles I will no longer have to bury coax in my yard. Over head cable and wires would be fast and easy to install.

Not sure of the dish model yet. The mount is a casting with nice pivot points.

Well and what a convenient place to hang out the wash!  Double win for sure.
