Finally, after 14 days, they delivered the promised material. The outer wall for the installation of the extension arms has been completed. The weather is not very good now for the next installation. I hope the material for the extension arms will no longer be in such delay.

The mesh installation is completed and the whole central part is finished. The next step is to install the center section on the elevation arm and begin mounting the arms to expand to the maximum dish size.

Today I finished all the ribs of the central offset parabolic dish of 4m diameter. Now I have to connect the arms and cover them with mesh. The extension of the arms will follow after the dish is mounted on the elevation mast.
