    Inverness Thistle has its ground right beside the Caledonian Canal Basin. Mind you it's a crap team...Play frequently interupted by retrieving ball from water :D

    Mind you they do get to watch football at sea (it would appear they are normally in it - still it don't smell as bad as the usual stuff!):D

    I don't watch the footie, but if this translates to 'How can I watch Sky aboard ?' - then the answer is here - probably via a SeaTel dish.

    Be warned that it's very very expensive :eek:

    The obvious answer is to get an aircraft carrier and invite the teams to play on deck ... :)

    But not a British one their too small! and the spectators are to aggresive! and that's just the WRNS (well there ain't much diference between the wrens and the jocks, both wear the same kit and like the same things... all but Bergalia please think about that one! :confused: :rolleyes:

    Bergalia can just scream! or play the pipes there ain't much difference!:p

    cost can depend on the area you want it. wireless digital tv stations are expanding and check footprints from satelite tv.
    a self fast pointing antenna disk for on a boat still sets you back some 2k

    If you're only needing to use your TV near shore, a good compact VHF/UHF antenna of the type sold for motorhomes should pick up the stronger local stations. If you want more than that, you pretty much have to go satellite- which gets very expensive as you also need auto-tracking satellite domes for this, in addition to monthly subscription fees. Another option is to modify your laptop computer's WiFi card to use an external antenna and tap into the thousands of free WiFi hotspots around major urban centres, and watch your games online.

    Marshy there ain't to many urban centres at sea, especially in the middle of whatever sea you happen to be visiting at the time!;)
