Default DirectTV? Cable? I got a BETTER idea.

Dish was here when I moved in. I have Cable (much better where I am).

What to do with the dish?

1. Add 2 old PVC fittings for 2 of the legs, and use the signal combiner to lengthen what will become the third leg:















2. This is what it looks like firmly sitting on all 3 new feet, and freshly clearcoated with Acrylic clearcoat (FDA approved, of course):












3. Now you are free to load up your new party platter with veggies, chips, crackers, meats, cheeses, or beer. Your choice.

Big party tomorrow. This should be a big hit.

Hey! Be nice. Why toss it? What could be more classic for a Party? What about for the Super Bowl?

Holds alot of food!
