I am fixit woman this week. Some idiot in a truck sideswiped my DirecTv dish yesterday. Judging from the recording that was going on at the time, they knocked it once, then perhaps trying to extricate themselves smashed the hell out of it. Tore the welds right out along one side of the arm. It wasn't a really graceful fix -- figure 8s of duct tape -- but it worked. I'll have to see if someone has a welding kit I can borrow to make a more permanent fix. And then I got it properly realigned just using the sun, not a compass.
