My 8.5' BirdView in my backyard right after I got it. (Looks like an old fashioned UFO).

The Birdview pedestal base and the motor. The motor wasn't in great shape so I had to get it working and build a position sensor for it.

The Birdview setup with mirror film. When the sun hit it, whatever was at the focal point would either ignite or melt!

The Birdview fully assembled with a Quaker Oats Cantenna for receiving L-Band
As you can tell from these pictures, I do a lot of experimenting with my dishes and feed systems. The Birdview is quite versatile for mounting various types of feeds, since I can cut a piece of 1/2" PVC sheet with a jigsaw and use it to hold any size or shape of feed. For FTA use I have a PVC circle with side by side holes for C and KU Band LNBFs. Currently the Birdview is holding a square septum feed for L-Band dual circular polarity (used by NOAA's GOES-16 and GOES-17 weather satellites).
When rainy season ends here, I plan to put a microphone at the Birdview's focal point and see how well it does as a sound antenna.
Thanks. Yes, Roseville as primestar31 said. We have a corner lot on 6/10th of an acre with a greenbelt on two sides.Nice looking country around you’re place. Where are you located? ...
