Haven't been around recently, I was on holiday in Spain for Easter, posting a few pictures taken from my recent visit.

Dish01.JPG

The orange dish was in a holiday park, where the visitors from all round Europe mounted lots of different size dishes to anything that would hold them steady.

On the same site was the tiny black dish on the roof of a caravan.

The one on the balcony must lose some signal from the bars?

My family think I'm nuts going round taking pictures of satellite dishes on holiday - I think they're right!

If anyone collects any more feel free to add them...

Nice set of pictures.

Ref: The one on the balcony must lose some signal from the bars?
Signal is coming down from space, not through the bars, or were you taking the p**s :)

No - but you're probably correct, the angle maybe OK and the LNB has a clear view of the dish but it must be close.

Nothing much exciting over here in France, but these are the two old dishes I re-tuned for my sister near Chartres, both on 28.2E for her two Sky digital receivers, didn't have a twin at the time. :)

Hi Gameboy,

Really like your pics. Would like to use them in What Satellite TV mag's internet section. Do I have your permission to use them?

Cheers,
Grant

It was a working holiday T_G. :)


Interesting though, I have had to replace two LNBs in the past because the geese pecked them to death, solved the problem now, fenced the dishes in. :D

you should have fenced the geese and let them out only when it was time for them to be cooked...

I haven't been on holiday for 2 years so I'm certainly not sending my disk on holiday!

Right then, here's my t0ken picture from hols.

Spot the mast with three (or four?) dishes.

Mmmm, maybe too much Mythos...

Anyhow, the actual reason I'm posting it, is that I dragged my family out to this place (at great expense, and just for you guys... LOL) purely because of the name of the island.

Hydra. :D
