Some one once gave me a Chesapeake railroad reflector. 8' solid, really solid, aluminum. My kids used it for a wading pool. A few years later, I found a mount. It worked well with a Chapparal feed and a gold ring.

I am thinking about how much spare coax one could keep on that wooden table / spool. Miles and miles I would guess. Least that table  shade "could" be "borrowed" and still put to use on a pole and point it at the Clark Belt. Perhaps during the night time when no one needs any shade from a full moon as the sun has "gone to bed" for a few hours. Double duty all from one dish. My second 11.7 foot glass dish almost got turned into just the same thing. I cam  along at the right time to "save" it from such a sad fate.

(lucky bob I have been called----often)

Dish Setup, Hardware, Wiring & Setup Installation Help > How much signal ya think this Dish gets ?

Depends on whether or not the people around the table are wearing their tin-foil hats.

Looks to me like a marriage of two dishes. Far side has a lot more ribs.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
