    It's a dish mount and a chin up bar in one. ;)

    That's hilarious. Can you see the guy out on that mount peaking the dish? :lol:

    Thank goodness it's a single orbit.

    I count six/seven other dishes with a rather oblique 'wall-hugger' LOS angle.
    This guy (or his installer) definitely had the "Git-R-Dun" attitude!

    He HAD to have used an A Frame ladder from the ground. :lol:

    You guys would probably laugh at the 10' dish that I put on top of a 40+ foot long pole a few years back too. :(

    I bet the installer didn't take into account the bending of the mount when the sun hits it.

    I'm hoping that they had an issue with someone hanging out a flag or laundry blocking the signal.

    11.jpg.:nono: I hope your insurance company doesn't see this one. Much less OSHA! Is that one of those "Little Giant" ladders I keep seeing at trade shows?

    That's a Little Giant that I still have an use all the time. I think that picture speaks to its strength. ;)

    Good eye on the Rane EQ. But then, you're the Audiomaster, so I expect that from you. ;) There's also an AMC preamp and a batch of AMC 4 channel power amps in the rack.
