    This is a beaver lodge in a marsh just south of Raquette Lake, NY, in the Adirondack Park, that appears to have a satellite TV dish connected to it. I took this picture yesterday.

    Presumably, the beavers are using it to get access to some of those pay-per-view channels. You know, the ones featuring beavers.

    Seriously, I don't know if this is someone's idea of a joke, or if it's some kind of wildlife monitoring transmitter. Pretty weird in any case.

    My guess is that its a joke and a pretty good one. Its not pointing at the sky so its not connecting to a sattelite, and even if its land based would need some sort of electrical source to power a transmitter. Now add a small solar panel and you might really get some peoples attention! Pretty funny pic though.

    Hate to tell ya this but up north Bell & Starchoice dishes pretty much point to the ground to get our signal. Very very low on the horizon. But Yes they do need power.
