    We have an Oyster on the van but on occasion it is pretty hopeless if we are 'put' somewhere directly behind a tree or some such

    This happened just this last weekend and it reminded me to post this info up

    When we first got in to motorhoming I bought one of the cheapo sat systems from Aldi.

    I still carry it around to this day and often get asked why ! ..

    Simple..

    Takes less than 5 minutes to get the little dish and LNB out of the bag, attach it to a pole that screws into the ground ( think originally it was meant as a washing tripod support thingy !! ) and bobs your uncle, one sat dish away from the tree and normal service resumed :thumb:

    Why not ask to be put on a different pitch in the campsite ? I have an Oyster fitted and when I explain the reason most wardens are very obliging ! :Blush: :Blush: :Blush:

    LOL !!! And yes, I could have easily asked for another pitch and have gotten it.. but I did not ruddy well notice until after I got the awning out, the nets up and all the other malarky operational !

    But a couple of weeks ago we was at a site on the Suffolk coast at Dunwich

    All pitches were surrounded by trees but I used the portable to set the dish up sort of 'out the back' in a field that backed on to the site :thumb:
