Can anyone beat this for cost cutting

Hmm, that reminds me of when I was at uni and we used tin foil and a raidiator as a TV arial.

I have done similar things myself. But i have never been into bradcasting.
I am guessing he has now got a lucrative business selling modified woks (and extra tenner gets you noodle TV)

I wonder if you can pick up Sky with a wok...
You'd have to bodge together a decoder too but it'd be fun to try.

My guess is if you can somehow plug it into your sky box you may just get a result. Of course some tinkering would be needed no doubt. A bloody large wok would not go amis either.

Well I was thinking of seeing if there was any progams on the net that can decode signals and plug the wok into the serial port and see what happens.
I did radio astronomy at uni, so I can probably strain my memory and remember something to do with the size of dish I need. All I need now is a cryptographer and an electrical engineer and I'm in business.
