  2. Yep, but I don't wanna give it away. However, I'll offer a clue.
    There's something wrong with the lower dish antenna in the photo.

    Thanks, that made my day.

    That could be a matter of perspective. It looks like it is missing some
    paint.

    Nope. Look again. Any more hints would be a give away.

  5. Hard to see, maybe the polarity of the feed versus the orientation of
    the dish mesh?

    The feed on the lower grid is off by 90 degrees. It was assembled
    incorrectly.

    I went in aand told them of the problem, they mentioned that they were
    having some trouble with the link.

  8. Ya know... Jeff, and Clarence, and Frank, you guys sorta deserve each
    other.

    I mean I know it is sorta blunt and tactless to tell you all to fux
    off... but why don't all of you, 'specially Frank, "I'm the guy who
    designs the tests from Pasadena." all FUX off...

    Which of the thousands of us who use this forum really give a ratz
    arse what you (Frank) or you (Jeff) or you (Clarence) really think?

    Inquiring minds want to know... and while we are at it... how far did
    you actually expect to get up that ladder with posts to this news
    group, anyway???

    You will have observed that I DID NOT post a link to my web site in
    this post....

    I don't know Frank. I think I "invited" Jeff back to this group after a
    long absence with a posting in another group.

    I thought it was moderately humorous. "missing paint"... isn't that true?
    The radiator being rotated 90 degrees won't paint the reflector correctly?

    I figured it was going to be something like a bird nest in the dish, or a
    cable hanging off, or one dish pointing at the other.
    Michael, Michael, Michael... calm down.
    I didn't think it was a technical test. And besides, it may only appear
    that the radiator is positioned incorrectly. Maybe there's a different
    radiator mounted such that we can't see it.
    Dunno. I thought it was humorous. Anybody who looked at the silly photos
    and then read the rest of thread must have been interested.
    Ladder? I know Jeff is "in the bizz", but I'm not. You can tell by the
    quality of reflectors that I build:

    I've posted your URL more than you've posted your URL.
    Google this group for "dold" your site - 94 hits.
    Google this group for "erskine" your site (by the new name) - 39 hits.
    What's that got to do with it?

    I'm not familiar with Frank or Clarence, but I'm learning
    a *lot* by reading what Jeff has to say.
