Hello!
3 days ago,suddenly the signal in cband disapear,searchng long time about the reason,and dont find,then i go outside,because there comes no signal from the lnb,and see that lives a spider inside,but everything was closed,so a still cannot imagine,how ths insect come to the little holes,and live inside my lnb:)
also i recogneized,that the birds,like big antennas,sometimes 10 of them sitting on the streps!

maybe some materials,with diffrent reflection the birds more aduct,then non reflection type of the antenna:)

i want to try,to find this out,installing a wireless camera,on my antenna,with a longtime vcr record!

Thanks for the pictures:)
the av com from austrialia i have also here now,i will install it in around one month and hope get 2 db more singal withit on 68,5 east!

also i think a know the reason why the spider dies so quick,you see on the signal,when it is lower and lower,when the animal is moving inside,and then,i find out,that my old astrotel prescision gold lnb,that i use on that dish,where the spider lives,when the receiver is turned on inside,and i touch the lnb,electrified my,when i touch the lnb,this only happen on this modell!
but i still dont know why!
the cabinet looks very stable and massive,how then the voltage from inside the lnb,comes outside,when someone touch it?any ideas!?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Spiders and their prey in the web can be cleared out with a bit of dry pasta, next month in the UK is the time squirrels stuff their nuts into feeds.

You need an airgun, or catapult.

Squirrels are great for the pot.

If I catch any rodents stuffing their nuts into my feed ...I'll cut 'em off ..
They will walk funny afterwards and it'll stop 'em breeding.

realy you can eat Squirrels,never haard about it!
how it smells?
i only eat corcidile one time in thailand,not many restaurants have it,but with Squirrels i found some real exotic meal:)

can a Squirrels also fly from tree to tree like a cat?
does someone here,ever catch one,and hold it like a houseanimal?

that was a little bit of topic now,but i only want to answer all questions,maybe we move the complete topic to the meeting zone,or what ever !

but one questions is sill unaswered,how the spider comes,into the lnb,when it closed on the top?

the avcaom feedhorn is open on the top,so for the animals is easy to come in ,and go out!
yesterday,a smile about it,when i haved the idea to this topic,now since i got a lot of replys,i smile much more,keep on posting:)

Squirelly. ;)

Seriously, it depends on the spices and vegetables you put in with them.

A decent game hotpot will always contain vermin to some degree.
