On-Boarding the Satellite Dishes: Day Two

Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 3, 2013


I only went up to the roof for about half an hour on Thursday, just to see what was going on.

The dish at the front of the building, the second largest dish on the building, was on-boarded. I was able to get a better shot of the activity (such as it was) by standing on the large satellite dish platform. Yes, that meant climbing up the ladder again, and it was very hot and windy.


They appear to be taping paper letters to the dish and then applying plastic stickers.


This is the small dish that faces the driveway. I call it “Gone but Not Forgotten” because you can still see the NDS logo clearly.

I couldn’t get in from the roof right away because the men were davening mincha (afternoon prayer) in the room at the top of the stairwell, which doubles as a small synagogue, so I had 15 minutes to kill on the roof. I took a few more photos.
