On reflection, there were two Andrews CM's on that mast. Nowhere near the size of that 'thing' halfway down, which looks like it's escaped from the timpani section of the LSO...

Spotted this morning near Paralimni, maybe a 3.8 although 4.2m used to be popular. Most expats go the IP route these days.

Some SAT-related hardware.

N-E from Riga
For sure, that is very unique installation. Just wander about reception results in Ku and C band without realignment of the dish. Attaching picture in cas original source fails

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

That is very cleverly done, the mesh part will be almost invisible to the Ku feed, through both focal distance and electro transparency.

That's the Monte Archanda transmission site that transmits Spanish digital terrestrial TV to Bilbao. The CM dishes will be almost certainly downlinking the TDT feeds (and probably some FM radio ones as well) from 30°W.
