Anybody know were I can get two or three old satelite dishes.? Answered

I would like two or three of these. They don't have too be any bigger than two feet. The more I think about it the more I want some of these. I want to make a mirror death ray, A water collection system and a super ear microphone. Also if any body knows of some other large parobolic dish I am open to sugestions.

  • Dumpster dive. Look in scrap yards.
  • Craigslist.
  • Ask at TV stores with installation services, see if they have any scrap spares.
  • Check the phone book for aerial and dish services, give them a call to see if they have any spares they have removed when a customer upgraded.
  • Walk around and look at houses. If a property has more than one dish, one may be redundant (especially if one is larger than the others, as new dishes tend to be smaller, and non-circular) - you could offer to take it down for them for free, as long as you get to keep the dish.

Your profile says you're 16 - you should be able to get out and do all of those yourself.

If you're not exactly 16 yet, then tell the folk you ask that you need them for a school science project on space communication, or transmitting renewable energy. If you mention "death rays" they won't be quite so cooperative.

I will try. However I need my dad to take me to the above mentioned places. He also has this thing about me scrounging in dumpsters. By the way even if I could do all this myself my dad would get real mad if I started bringing home 3ft Dishes without asking him.
