Hi,

Because i don't have the right to put a dish, i find a solution from a cat tunnel to hide it... :ph34r::ph34r:

This is my dish, a flat Selfsat antenna with a Selfsat DiSEqC motor.

This is the tunnel for cat, only 1.49euro and i need 3 of them.

From outside my white dish is really visible.

Ok , now let start to camo it !

The first tunnel is used without any modification.

The 2 other are used without metal cable inside.

On the picture you can see some white cable ties but i will change them by something black.

Now from outside the flat dish don't really look like a prohibited antenna isn't it ?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Well done for ingenuity, bit strictly speaking, it's not a dish in the first place (even in native french)

Love it.

Most of us get concerned about spiders getting into our LNBs, but you seem to need to worry about nesting cats!

Love it!

And there was me thinking "cat tunnel" was some kind of technical term I hadn't heard of.

Great job, well thought out.
At least you won't get inspectors looking for dishes but you may get an armed swat team:-doh
