Blue hortensia

Hydrangea macrophylla hortensis

New satellite link to the internet

The 56Kbps Dial up connection throught the telefonica's node in Ávila was unbelivable slow, no more than 5Kbps was the usual speed!
Because DSL/cable is not available yet in this rural area, I've changed to a satellite system which seems so far more reliable and faster.

Here's a detail of the antenna, with the transmisor (left) and the receiver (up).

The cons are the noisy decoder/router (ventilation fans) and a too big dish (below).
