The MK2 version of the temporary holder, strong enough to keep lnb in place and allows adjustment :O)
Excellent 19e from the off center. 2E\G uk very strong after 'a million' small adjustments, 2F uk too weak in evenings for that size of dish. Recently had 2 lnb failing, single BU & Maximum, using an old Triax quad (15 years or so), amazingly sensitive.

And watching the fantastic tennis going on these days...

Hi guys, the Norway cottage has been getting some long planned & much needed attention, the long term idea to fix up the place is starting to yield results. Previously had only worked to save all the internal wood, support beams, keep water out etc, this year was time to start with the externals. Not finished, got windows to install etc etc, but it's taking shape. Body is aching everywhere, but the soul is happy :O)

Really needed lots of hard work & money to achieve the correct vintage looks & style lol++++

Some work examples:

....apart from the fjords and mountains, did you know this about Norway:

- Europe's biggest death by drugs by % of population. For the last 15 years or so, and getting worse.
- The fake peace image: it's one of the worlds leading weapons exporter pr. capita.
- Last years suicide rate % was the highest ever recorded.
- The fake image of being so environemental conscious and aware, while being one of the worlds largest oil exporters, not using much of it here but gladly making tons of money by polluting the rest of the world's air and oceans.
