  • 3. ■ He fitted his 3.0- meter antenna with a C/Ku-band Combi feed. Natalino is very lucky: his wife has nothing against his hobby and enjoys watching all those TV channels on their three flat big-screen TVs (one in the bedroom, one in the living room and another in the work room). These chan- nels come from eight fixed satellite an- tennas, five on the roof, one on the ter- race and two mounted on the wall. ■ Close-up view of the mast: As it turns out, he started his hobby because of its elevated position, Natalino had to secure the mast relatively late. He explains to us that he with guy wires. only erected his first antenna in 2005: “That was a 1.5-meter mesh antenna that I had pointed to BRASILSAT B4.” Back then Natalino didn’t really know anything about technology or satellite reception. He never learned a real trade but in the meantime has been success- fully running his own little company with five employees that distributes in his home city of Jundiai Prospect. A good portion of the income he receives from this goes right into his hobby. “So far I’ve probably given out at least 50,000 Real (about 20,000 Euros) for all of my reception equipment”, he admits. His second large acquisition was a 1.8-meter dish with a motor in 2006.254 TELE-satellite International — The World‘s Largest Digital TV Trade Magazine — 1 1-12/2012 — www.TELE-satellite.com
