Quick reflector test

It’s an ideal day to test the parabolic reflector made from an old Foxtel satellite dish (thanks Rupert!).

I wanted to give it a quick test before calibrating it (a post on that is coming).

It’s a beautiful 21° in the garden at the moment but on the paper at the end of the support arm, its a hot 67°!

Thats 46° of pure, free energy.

As you can see from the pic below, its hot enough to start paper burning. Ouch!
