I take great pleasure watching how different channels cover news items so differently.

Today's funeral in the middle East was very sad, it was covered by most news channels from the US to Far East.

I find it fascinating to be able to scan the skys and see how they all have their own way of covering major events. It's a big part of the buzz I get from Satellite viewing across the globe.

Anyone agree or disagee?

Just scan through Analoguesat's web site and you will find pictures of his "tyre mounted dishes", It does work as I haver tried it also. There is also another enthusiast up in Aberdeenshire that does the same
