        I wonder if this donation is tax deductible. One thing for sure, it'd give me a chance to get rid of my neighbors cat!

              is there such thing as an "omni-directional dish"?
              doesn`t that defeat the purpose of a dish?

                    I believe he's referring to the sort of dish you use on RV's, so that you can watch TV while moving. Although, I though that it was still a uni-directional dish that was simply motorized and continuously tracking, rather than actually being omni-directional, but I could be wrong on that.

                      You are correct... in a kinda perverted way, I guess you could call it omni, but it's not

                      It finds signal and , whooop, turns into one of those uni-directional devices mysteriously

                      Even if he succeeds... I'd wouldn't run out placing bets that he'll be successful when it comes time to operating during contest...

                      because.. knowing is half the battle
                      if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                        antennas 101

                        omnidirectional means coming from all directions

                        unidirectional means either receiving the signal, or transmitting the signal, but not both... that would be bidirectional.

                        These are two different things, an antenna can be an omnidirectional-unidirectional antenna, and another antenna can be omnidirectional-bidirectional....

                        Otherwise if you are talking about a yagi antenna, that is just a directional... no prefix required, and of course you can have an directional-unidirectional, as well as a directional-bidirectional...

                            The ones for RV's have a combination of the two, maybe? An omni-directional one to track where the signal is, and one that is directional that actually receives the signal. Either way, it's not your typical satellite dish.

                              Is this what you are referrring to?

                              It looks like it uses GPS to calculate angle and rotation based on the satellite you are trying to hit. Looks pretty cool, you can have satellite TV while moving - would be cool to pair it with broadband but now that Hughes DirecPC is dead and Starband/Gilat seems to barely alive this seems unlikely
