    After eating some Turkey yesterday the sun came out for a few minutes and planted a rainbow on my dish.

    Here is a pic of my dish rigged up for Christmas with the "Rudolph Radar Tracker Antenna System".
    Santa_Tracker.JPG

    First: A North Pole Yagi Tracker.

    Second: Computer designed, band-tuned Sleigh Bell Attenuators . These zero in on sleigh bell signals even in the worst weather conditions.

    Third: Qptional Wreath Locator Rings. W.L.R.'s increase signal lock by preventing frequency drift. Works on both linear and circular transmissions.

    Finally the option which I am most proud to announce to you today: Reindeer Flatulence Rejector Traps on the front end! (Patent Pending) After the first few stops for egg nog, fruitcake, and hay... the reindeer gas cloud previously made tracking difficult. But not any more! This computer optimized unit increases tracking range up to 4000 miles by rejecting the gassy emissions that have plagued Reindeer Tracking Systems (Not to mention noses!) for years!!! No more will you be surprised by an early visit from Santa!

    This offer will not be available in stores and can be yours for 4 easy payments of....

    *** Unit should probably be removed during normal FTA operation. Video may not be effected, but Audio is re-digitalized into non-stop Christmas Music on ALL channels. If you enjoy watching 'Hondo' with "Silver Bells' for audio...then that is your choice....***
