  The Reflector is on

17 April 2000

The wind in recent weeks has held up the fitting of the mesh reflector, but has now been  completed.

The reflector material is a very fine stainless steel woven mesh which was originally intended to be fly screening material - I bought it in Spain while on holiday a few years back!!

The mesh was cut into 16 sector shaped petals and held down with aluminium strips the same width as the ribs and some 600 stainless steel self tapping screws
