I finally received my Satellite equipment today from my good Muqqadam at the school. Two satellite dishes, 3 LNBs and 2 receivers...I have no idea what all the stuff is for, so my interpreters are doing all the work. A happy Muqqadam means happy interpreters to them, I guess. The thing is, it is dark and they are still on the roof working. They got a little TV up there, a long extension cord, all of the boxes...great if I want to watch on my roof, but we still haven't even run the lines into the rooms yet! My XO and I each purchased the same two receivers, and will share the 2 Dishes and 3 LNBs...that is when we can figure out what the 3rd LNB is for. May have to talk to the guy at the school, but this time with my interpreters there.
Anyway, today we had some rather senior ranking Iraqi Army and Police officials come to visit us. When I get some pictures, I will post them. I wasn't even taking any today, so I will rely on my guys that were snapping the photos to send to me. I think that our little school is finally making a name for itself, since this is the second set of generals to visit in about a week. We have the only battle simulation capability in Iraq, and I think that they are starting to see how valuable that training is.
I need to get back outside and "Supervise" the activities. It really is kinda funny. Don't want to miss anything hilarious or something like that.
