Certainly - it was a freebie scavenged off the side of the road on bin day in 2001. It sits on an old car tyre pointing at 19E, although gawd knows what it will be pointing at by tomorrow morning..... :D

Dishes more or less survived the battering. The 19E 80cm dish on the tyre is slightly off beam and 16E (the 1m dish) is going to need tweaking a bit......

Repairs / realignments this afternoon. :) A gentle kick should push the tyre round enough.
