Check it OUT ! i built a spaceship 

dont mind this very offtopic post even for the offtopic section , i am just very proud of my achivement of putting this damn thing togheder lol...its such a grown up...man thing to do :-)


lol...Its acctualy a Digital Antenna that looked kind of cool on Ebay ....i like it cause you can use a remote control to rotate....but to be honest i just liked the fact that it looked so complicated ...not realizing i was going to have to build the whole f***ing thing myself !!


but did it ...dont know how...the instructions are pathetic...

well...it spins , lets hope i can get good tv reception now...

ive spent the last few weeks on ebay, upgrading my house gadgets

I've never seen a TV antenna as extreme as this. Looks like a weapon from a 1950's sci-fi movie. So did you get better reception with it?

LOL!

Just don't try to take it through airport security or you're a dead man.

When you mount it on a pole outside, just make sure you put plenty grease round the moving parts and make sure all the electrical connections are well sealed against moisture.
It's weather/rain/rust that usually kills these things off within a year or so unless you maintain them.

Happy viewing!

cheers,

Ron

Is that for picking up TV stations, or gamma rays from distant galaxies?

great work, flo. it looks like a serious home security device. you should probably stop expecting mail. if i was a mailman, i would not go anywhere near your house in fear of being vaporized.
