"Many of us rural folks have been wondering what we could do with those giant eyesore 10-ft. dia. dish antennas standing in our yards.
  "My dish was bolted together in four segments so it was easy to disassemble and bolt together in nested sections. I made plastic inserts to cover the screening on my dish from 4 by 8 poly sheets bought from Farmtek (www.farmtek.com).
  "The dish is set on a ring of concrete which has a barrier of foil-backed insulation both inside and outside. The poly on the dish has an R value of 2.
  "I use it to start plants early in the spring," says Horne.
