And bloody useless as it wont track any particular satellite for more than a few minutes even with electronic skewing of the antenna :D

How do you fancy watching a channel for 10 minutes a day as the earth rotates the sats into the narrow field of view ;) !

Would make a lovely swimming pool though :D

Just went to Sirius, haven't been there in a long while. Put in an old gold card with June 2003 keys on it and I picked up 18 channels.:D And I didn't have to update the card...those keys have never been changed in donkey's years!!:D

Cannot get Spice Platinum anymore though...
