I desperatly need one of the old bsb squarial dishes
My other half converted one into a clock when BSB sold out to sky and the dished were no longer any use, just junk.
I know there are loads on the side of houses/buildings around the country I've seen them, and some people have some in attics etc
I desperately need to find another one as I broke the other halfs one when I was cleaning it, used the wrong cleaner and it melted the plastic. :(
I hope SOMEONE can help, please :)

The picturs is the kind of dish I'm after, there were 4 different makes aparently, one might say the word "Tatung" on it, one might have a logo only and one might have nothing, any or either will do, and if I end up with two then it will make him even happier as he will have a spare!

BTW I'm In Manchester area, go to Liverpool most days and dont mind travelling if needed to collect this, if it isn't too far, if it's too far I'll arrange and pay for courier pickup if you want and it's easier for you.

Thanks to those that replied so far, unfortunately the satellite museum is unlikely to sell theirs as its a museum, but he saw the two in the unopened boxes and almost drooled lol

Shipping/Payment:
I'll pay shipping and a small amount for the dish if needed

I know, thats the problem, he was so proud when he turned it into a clock because it was radio controlled so it was always exact to less than one second.

I know there are many on the sides of houses still, I've seen them when travelling around the country, and some people have them in boxes or in the attick
but unfortunately there is no way on earth of ever buying a new one again as they are not made anymore, only a small amount were ever made, and the ones on the sides of houses or that people might have is practically useless as the original satellite stopped transmitting Many years ago, some of them got converted for a French satellite, but even those are of no use these days, so basically it's just a piece of junk taking up space wherever it will be found, but he is desperate to make another clock out of it

and IF anyone can find me one I'll be forever grateful as it will make my life so much easier (not listening to him moaning)

Try having a look on Freecycle as you never know what may appear. :)

hi-try freecycle-your best bet i would say...its amazing what obscure things people can find for you in the loft if you ask!

A somewhat strange request, however a really nice one in the sense that you clearly are prepared to want to sort out a replacement after the accident.

My only suggestions besides hopefully someone getting back to you on here is maybe to try a wanted post in your local freecycle group on Yahoo, and a wanted post in Ebay.

*Edit, great minds think alike, three posts on freecycle replies in a minute!*

It Is In Near Perfect Condition & Worked Perfectly When I Last Used It In Around 1987.
Sure It Has Tatung Written On It,
Whats It Worth & Do You Want It !
