Here are a few pics of my dad's 1.20m dish, pointed at 28ºE, and the neighbours dishes. The one one the chimnney is my dad's 65cm dish, for Hispasat. In the far back left is a motorized 1.20m dish that is abandoned. The Nokia dish has been there for a good 7 or 8 years. It's also been abandoned for about 2 years.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Plenty of opportunity for you to experiment rato2 with all those redundant dishes. :D

I know! I'm very tempted! The one on the left of my dad's is also motorized but it's all rusted up. My dad and I are going to ask the previous user/owner if we can use it(it's abandoned, but the owner still lives there).

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.
