What can I do with this?

Hello,

I'm very interested in getting started in radio astronomy and I recently acquired an old HDTV dish with the recievers and I was wondering where I should start. I've been cleaning it all up and I was wondering if the front recievers would be of any use. I'd definitely like to hear from you if you have any advice or information as to how I could use it in solar observations (I've read about people doing this with similar antennas before I think).

The guy in the video I posted here says the
plans are not hard to find on the 'net.
Maybe contact adafruit.com and they can hook you up
with the guy in the video.
