    How come all your pics are side-ways all the time lately? They never used to be...

    I'm watching on an iPhone 4.
    The thumbnails are rotated 90 for me (wrong), but the pictures are fine.
    I suspect there is macro data imbedded in the picture, describing its orientation.
    ...and my phone corrects the view.

    Looking via working Windows computer....
    Yea, thumbnails off by 90, and so are pictures when I view them in their own tab (Firefox 22.0).
    edit: Windows XP Pro

    Dan - just shoot your pix in landscape instead of portrait mode, and see if everyone is happy.
    You might shoot in portrait, then load 'em into an editor for cropping, but that sounds like WORK! ;)
    (if they show up in your editor, rotated...you probably will have a Rotate button to fix 'em)

    The pics themselves are quite good, except for the being sideways.

    From wikipedia: Angola, Indiana. Average annual snowfall is 34.7 inches.

    You might have a slight problem come winter time! LOL! Other than that, nice setup, and thanks for the pictures.

    I may be wrong but that looks like a 1.2 meter dish but your lnb is more suited for a 1 meter dish. If you can find one of those older lnbs with the more defined feedhorn, I suspect you will get more signal out of that dish.

    Nice home-made platform! Might be a bit heavy to move around, but then that is the point. Needs some paint though before it rusts.

    I got some plates welded on so I can add a canvas cover to make it look like a BBQ grill so I can fool the manamgent at the apartments i'll have more pics coming soon. i got 62 channels out of that dish.

    If it's dry, it might be okay.
    I would go with vinyl, which should do fine.
    Just need a frame to drape it over, to get that BBQ look.
    Clever idea.
    Was wondering how you were going to get away with so many dishes. :)


    Edit: and if you're going to post a dish picture, remember that everyone doesn't know its brand and size.

    that dish sits on the back porch is a channel master 1 meter. I have so called permission for the dish on my pole outside my apartment but it didn't say in the rule book that I couldn't add on. They banned satellite dishes but I got to keep mine but others can't. I tested out the cover material on my other dish covering up cband lbf and ku band lnb got a good signal quality its the same materia tey make boat covers out of here. Here in Angola they have everything for boats cause of the 101 lakes in the county.
