Birdwood Satellite position 1a
Location: Behind the church, between water tank and fence. See
1b for photo.
Good points: Hidden from view, no likely obstructions, not in
Bad points: Where would equipment go? Trees may grow, but
unlikely to grow high enough to interfere. Placement of receiver.
Details: The dish would not be visible from the road. The area
is not used much, however grass needs to be mowed in the area. The
dish would have to be high enough to mow under unless anti grass
measures (concrete slab, weed killer) are implemented. Possible
receiver positions are little kids room and the cleaning cupboard.
Storm damage unlikely, animal damage is worth considering.
Note: there is a possibility
that the compass did not give a true reading for this location as it
seems out of alignment compared to the rest. If so, the pine trees
may cause problems in a few years.
