Top 10 Ways Not to Install a Satellite Dish
10 – The Bucket Challenge
If you’re confident with a bit of DIY, you can buy a receiver and satellite dish and install them yourself! Or you could just grow your own like this person.
9 – Power Source
You’ll need to run a new cable from the satellite receiver to your dish so make sure they are near the power supply to power them.
8 – Boost and Fail
Things that can improve satellite signal without upgrading to a bigger dish are about 100% alignment not adding more metal to it!
7 – Perfect Placement
Make sure you are installing the dish as close to the point of connection as you can. I other words the room you might watch it the most. In this case the loo!
6 – The DIY Channel
Even if you are only going to use it now and again you should try to make sure it is securely fixed to something other than chipboard.
5 – On Yer Bike!
If you need reasons why this is a crazy idea you need to stop installing your own satellite dishes.
4 – Satellite Seat
At least the chair is not a metal one I suppose. And no-one seems to use it to sit on.
3 – Ladder Tie Off
Health and safety advice says that the satellite dish installer needs to use a ladder tie-off system. I don’t think this is what they meant.
2 – The Wrap Around
One of the first things to do when installing a new satellite dish is to make sure you can place it where it needs to point!
1 – Trolley Dash
Why pay all those expensive satellite TV install fees when all you need is a trolley to stick it on!
