Any idea what this dish type is called, what is it used for? Found it at Mt Maunganui.

(the back of a) satellite dish ??   Are we suppose to be looking at the fact it's not perfectly parabolic ?

Unidentified thing is now circled, I assumed it was some kind of sat dish, maybe not? Sorry for bad pic, it was cropped from a selfie my Dad took... If it is for Sky, it appears to be at the wrong angle? It also doesn't have a standard LNB (or anything at the expected focal point)

Looks like the back of a Sky dish with LNB beyond it.  Also looks too small to transmit.  What makes you think it is anything else?

Context would help.  Is that a residential roof?

Looks like it has some DIY coat hanger upgrade :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Yeah it appears to be the back of a sat dish, bit of an optical illusion if you ask me.

Its an old school sat dish for sky or freeview, I had mine replaced about 3 days ago, the guy had to call sky to check if the dish was my dish or not (we rent) but its an old sky one. 

quietly he left it behind for me. going to strip it and use it as a plate on my bbq. Will this work?
