I was watching the History Channel, Modern Marvels, and caught something that just made me ill.
They were showing a wrecking ball smashing a building down and on top of the roof there was what appeared to be a 2-3 meter Channel Master or Primestar composite dish (the ones with the geometric webbing to the rear of the dish). I really could not tell how large the dish truly was, but it seemed larger than one meter. I could see the dish bouncing as they dropped the ball on the roof of the building and I just wanted to cry!
What a horrible shame that they didn't ask anyone to remove that dish before they demolished the building! There ought to be a society for the prevention of cruelty to dish antennas! What a waste. What a shame.
