es were erected in Moscow with which
CNN was received. György worked for
many years in Moscow: “I worked for a
local authority and handled electronic
communications”, he says as he thinks
back to those days.
Today György is retired and can
therefore spend as much time as he
wants with his hobby. “A few years ago
I was in the USA and bought a num-
ber of large used dishes.” He packed
them in a container in order to get
them home; they are now all mount-
ed on the wall of his home. There are
six apartments in his building. “When
my neighbor moved out, I bought his
apartment”, says György who then tore
down the dividing wall between the two
apartments. This all had a nice side ef-

of my house making it very easy for
me to adjust dishes that are located a
little further away.” A projection TV for
antenna alignment! Surely György is
unique when it comes to this! He can
even attach a laptop to the lid of this
cabinet; the power cable and Internet
connection are already hard-wired in
place - all he has to do is connect them
to his laptop. Then he can chat with his
hobby colleagues via the Internet while
he’s adjusting an antenna.

on a pull out carrier so that he can

can be found hidden under a rain hood.
4. What is this? Sure enough, György
even installed a small video camera so
that he can see from inside his house
how his dish is turning.
