We live in a Historic Community and getting a satellite Dish service on Wednesday. We have to hide it, so we've been looking for possible decorative solutions. We found a resin trash can and thought maybe a barrel would work. Anyone have any wxperience with these materials?

A sat dish needs line of sight to the satellites. Things like trees can block the signal, so something solid like resin or a barrel will also block it. It's a signal coming from space, after all.
The alignment is pretty orientation sensitive as well.


If the dish can point to the satellites (usually south) and you can have that section uncovered, you can probably shield the rest of it so it's not an eyesore.


Would need to see pictures of where you intend to put it and what sightlines need to be covered (and what the line of sight would be.)

I've used a FTA dish shooting through those roll-up sunshades (the plastic ones that are made to look like bamboo).
