I think Sadoun is located in one of those private "Industrial Parks". The dishes appear to be in the parking lot.

As soon as I saw that photo, I thought, "South Georgia or Northern Florida".
My uncle, in Lake Park (Georgia), used to build those "55-Gallon Oil Drum, Split down the Middle" BBQ grills. You could cook a whole deer on one of those. :D

Here's mine from home...gotta put the dish back on it.
It's all made from a DISH mount, and parts from Lowe's...unistrut and a 12x12 steel plate. The pipe flanges are threaded through, so they can be used to vertically plumb the mount (no pun intended).
It can be used to get the dish low enough to see under the eaves, to the south-southeast, for Galaxy 19.

Here's the mount, with a 0.85 m dish. I may add a motor, but will use a bit stiffer mount, and add something inside the pipe to keep it round when clamping the motor bracket.

Made a PVC insert for the top of the larger 2" pipe (I think it was from a SuperDISH) yesterday. It fits tightly inside the pipe, so a Stab 90 H-to-H Motor can mount on there without deforming the pipe.
Lots of work to mill down a piece of PVC rod from 3-1/2" diameter, to 1.9" or so. :D
I'll try to install the motor later this week, and take pictures.
