    What? $20K for a tomato paste can and a pin diode? ;-)

  4. The BBC used an aluminium saucepan blank in the construction of a
    temporary televison transmitter aerial in the 1950s and I have used a
    dustbin lid as a parabolic reflector for recording birdsong.

    Now what can I make with that empty washing up liquid bottle....?

    Spent 1/2 hour this morning searching google.
    None are the "Ken Jones" designed wok antenna.
    Maybe too insignificant for google I guess...
    Yahoo neither...

  10. Not legal for a commercial TV station in th US. Used 7 GHz STL
    equipment was under $5,000 US the last time I looked. Sometimes 11 GHz
    CARS band equipment can be used, as well. WACX in Orange City/ Orlando
    has two 7 GHz and one 11 GHz systems in use.
