A satellite dish is responsible for reflecting the transmission of a satellite to an LNB (amplifier low noise block, for short) that modifies the signal so it can be viewed on a TV. You can protect the antenna when not be used for a long period of time, for example, when you go on vacation, putting a protective cover on it. To make a cover for satellite dish, you only need to buy some tools and materials in any craft store. No power is required experience and will not damage the antenna housing in any way.

Instructions

 

1

Measure the length and width of the satellite antenna with tape. Record your measurements on a piece of paper.

 

2

Place burlap on a work surface. Cut a rectangle that is 5 inches (12.7 cm) longer on all sides than the action you took. Discard the excess burlap.

 

 

3

Remove the protector rough side of Velcro pads. Place the sticky side of the Velcro pad on each of the four corners of the burlap.

 

4

Measure the width of the burlap from the top left corner to the upper right corner. Velcro pad laying another half of this distance on the top edge of the burlap. Repeat with another pad at the bottom.

 

5

Measure the back of the satellite antenna from the upper left corner to the upper right corner. Make a point with the pencil in half that distance. Repeat with the bottom left corner.

 

6

Measure the length of the satellite antenna from the upper left corner to the bottom left corner. Make a point with the pencil in half that distance. Repeat this procedure starting at the top right corner of the antenna.

 

7

Remove the protective layer of the soft part of the Velcro pads. Place the sticky side of each pad in each of the four corners of the antenna and the marks you made with the pen. Let the adhesive pads to dry for a day before proceeding.

 

8

Hold the burlap with Velcro pads on the rear. Place a cover over the antenna. Fold the sides of the cover behind the antenna and push the two groups Velcro pads against each other to stick together.
