I am sure there is a BUD/tree joke in there somewhere.
Did you even tell her that would block the signal? She may just think she's blocking herself from seeing it and that it won't affect your reception...
if you tip one of those things straight up, they make great leaf holders or sometimes fire pits
I'm sure you can get old single LNB dishes pretty cheap. I'd go buy a bunch of fence posts, line them all up near her property line, and put a dish on each one. She'll never know which one is the real one. You may need to attach some coax to each one to make it convincing.
+1 but aim them all in different directions
It costs $50 to have DirecTV move a dish...just pay it and save yourself the headache.
You can have a little farm
If is me I will keep that dish in there and buy another one and relocate the cables, but I will never relocate the dish, will leave there for years.
get a new dish and pole, just move it randomly around the yard
everytime you move the dish, the old harridan will plant a new tree, just move the dummy dish, and soon she will have a whole forest.
Check you local code. Many municipalities have laws on the books regarding a neighbors right to block sunlight into your property. Knowing that sunlight/sat signal use a similar path may mean a zoning violation!
My neighbor used to put leaves/yard waste in my mailbox from the area in between our houses. They denied it, even though I saw them do it once. One day I reached my limit and decided to get even. From that day on if I found anything in my mailbox (other than mail) I totally lit up the side of my house next to theirs, paying attention to aim lights directly into their windows. I would leave them on for a few days straight. After a couple of stretches of what I liked to call "Bright Nights" they got the hint and never messed with my mailbox again.
When it dies from the round-up tell her it was probably the radiation from the dish. Then stare at her for a very long time.
Copper Sulfate is your friend
So we have all these ideas on how to misstreat your neighbors now. We sure have advanced alot on DBSTALK. Haven't we?? Everyone in the world does not care about a satelitte dish. Just get over it and pay the $ 50 to move it. Treating a neighbor badly is not the answer.
Did no one teach you the golden rule as a child? Do unto others as they have done unto you?
I'm sure Dave is right.
However, rotten scoundrel that I evidently am, I find that armophob's suggestion has a certain appeal ;-)
But, sometimes when it happens to a jerk, it sure feels good.:feelbette
