Have large satellite dishes(fiberglass ones)and would like to see them recycled. Would make great pond or spa forms,school-bus shelter,animal shed or gazebo roofs. We have several to give-away:they need to be picked-up here in NW Illinois on Wisc. border.

Thanks Mimi. I think I will try to build a moveable chicken house/using one as the roof for my chicks.

A satellite dish is parabolic in shape. A 6' or 8' dish can be made easily into an extremely powerful solar furnace.

You can BBQ ribs in minutes with dishes that size.
