You will have to bond the grounds together. (The rod you drove, to the existing rod/water pipe/etc.

New Zealand canned the Public Broadcasting Fee, a few years ago, it was just being wasted on lots of expensive low-quality TV programmes from all over the world(mainly the States), but most of it was advertised as quality viewing! [Linked Image]
Also, this fee used to be used to pay for our
NZ Symphony Orchestra, why the h**l New Zealand needs a bunch of old musicians, to suck NZ$2.5million out of our TV and Radio budget, is beyond me!.
But we soon got Pay TV, over here, using a Terrestrial signal, this has now been upgraded to a Ka Band Digital signal, with more channels than you can shake a stick at.
More Channels, less to watch!. [Linked Image]

A lot of people here feel that the license should be abolished (I'm one of them, by the way). It's becoming harder and harder for the BBC to cling to their "we need it to provide a good public service" stance.

As for what's on, I'm afraid that the main networks here have deteriorated rapidly. Still, I suppose that's what you get when they hire executives who think that Jerry Springer is "quality" programming. [Linked Image]

Is the "Nick at Nite" channel still going strong in the States? I had the cable box set on that most of the evening when I was there -- Love those old shows.

As an American I apologize for assaulting your country with "Springer" not one of our finer exports. [Linked Image]

Where do they find these freaks? [Linked Image]

iwire, it seems that there's a new reality show about "Hillbillies in Beverly Hills". Another opportunity for fun to be poked at us country folk.

Ed, is that a C-Band Dish?.
As Paul was saying, a lot of Ka-Ku band dishes are popular in the UK and a few other places, NZ included.
What is the wind loading on a dish like that?, hope your Chimney is built well! [Linked Image]
PAUL, Jerry Springer is on Sky over here,
(Pay TV), there have been complaints, but if you don't like it, don't subscribe to that channel, simple as that. [Linked Image]

Yes, it's a c-band dish.

That isn't a chimney, it,s the base of a tower on my workshop/greenhouse for a future windmill. I'm going to try to produce some wind-generated electric heat to offset the rising cost of heating oil.

"Nick At Nite" Isn't really a channel on it's
own, but what is broadcast in the late evening/early morning on the Nickleodeon childrens channel. However, Nick's sister channel; TVLand, plays the same sort of programming as on Nick At Nite, all classic

Don't worry, we won't hold Jerry Springer against you! Some of the talk shows produced here aren't exactly intellectual TV at its best either! [Linked Image]

Give me Bilko, Andy Griffith, Dragnet and shows of that era over the trash that's turned out now any day.

Yeah, I think they change over from cartoons to Nick at Nite at 7pm don't they? ("Six, central" as they would say....)
