Wok Saves TV Station.

Why buy expensive commercial transmitter to run your TV station when a $10 wok does just fine? New Zealand "45 South" TV station volunteer Ken Jones explains:

"A group of us wanted to connect our computers to each other and then we worked out a way to get of getting the signal between two points," he said.

He discovered satellite dishes were between $100 to $400 retail and that smaller dishes, the same size as a wok, were $80.

Mr Jones thought he could do better.

Along with friend Murray Bobbette they worked out mathematical equations to prove the curved metal face of a wok would have the same effect as a small satellite dish.
