One night a light bulb went off in
his head and he came upon the idea
to take LED light strips, like those
used to pimp a car, and bend them
into a circle and install them in the
feed horn of his dishes. It gives his
dishes a supernatural look to them.
It’s no wonder that his neighbors
look at Ralf’s hobby with some skep-
ticism. “They simply don’t under-
stand what I’m doing here”, says
Ralf, “They say that I can only watch
one channel at a time anyway, what
do I want with 8000 channels?” But
it’s not about watching 8000 chan-
nels, it’s about being able to receive
8000 channels.

dish thereby scaring his neighbors into
thinking that aliens have landed on Earth.
