What should I do with my old Hughesnet dish?

I'm just curious if anyone has suggestions on what I can do with my old Hughesnet dish? It is just out in the yard collecting weeds right now and I want to repurpose it somehow. I thought about using it for target practice, but I want to put it to use.

I considered turning it into an amp for my cell signal, but that was very complicated.

I'm also thinking of using it as a mount for a solar panel so I can get a solar powered automatic gate opener.

What do you guys think? Any suggestions?

I also have a smaller Dishnetwork dish that was taken down when the new updated dish was installed.

Go to Pinterest. They should have lots of ideas for recycling the dish!

Ventilate it with bullets? It isn't heavy enough to use as a boat anchor....maybe for a row boat. ;)
