In this, I describe how I use the Cantenna and add it to an old satellite dish.
First, you must have a Cantenna. If necessary, search for that on this site or in google.
Then, you need an old satellite dish. It might not be like the one I use here, so take a look at: http://people.wallawalla.edu/~Rob.Frohne/Airport/Primestar/Primestar.html This primestar has an easy to use feed arm. I had to improvise a method of mounting the can, because the arm on my dish doesn't go all the way to the feed-point area.
Tools were just a couple wrenches to re-configure the dish, a phillips screwdriver to rip apart the old lnb's, a utility knife and a roll of electrical tape. Oh, and an ink pen.
Step 1: What the cat drug in
There's a pair of LNB's on a y-adapter. The y-adapter is a two-piece clamshell plastic affair that looks rather doubtful. It looks like I'm going to have to add something to get from the arm to where the cantenna is going to go. Oh well, I'm feeling determined at this point. Besides, if I tear it apart enough, maybe something will inspire me. It's happened before
