    Thanks for that info, Conky. Now I'll be able to see exactly where Hispasat is (provided there are no clouds that day). I'll take a picture. You should too, Avenger...

    Even with the leaves coming on the trees, I gave it a try. I tried an old Primestar dish that I've used in the past at my test location for 30W and got the signal in about 30 seconds. Then once I knew it was possible I cycled through the ridiculously undersized dishes to see what was possible to rig up. Even a frankendish500 gave a watchable picture with fluctuating 30ish quality. The Primestar was around 80Q.

    Good catch!

    I remember when VW Beetles were shipped with those suction cup solar panels. Picked up several hundred for free from the local dealer who didn't know what to do with them after the prep team removed.

    I use mine for charging a motorcycle battery in the storage shed "off grid" light system.

    How many of the panels did you score?

    If anyone wants to use a freeware program to see where the arc is in comparison to the sun/moon/planets/stars for your location I wrote a tutorial here
    It's a year old but the instructions should still work

    I have a few of those VW solar panels. My 03 GTI, 03 Jetta and 05 GTI came with them. Starting in 06 most of the cars didn't come with them anymore. I use them to maintain the tractor batteries and the shed has an inverter and car battery setup for a sound system when working on projects and a some lighting.
