    It would be impractical if you need a different length of aerial for
    each channel.

  4. I am told by those in the know that it would only really do to take the
    place of
    whip aerials. It's difficult to see how you could fashion a dish from water
    and you might have a problem
    with replicating the long wires needed for HF, especially the orientation
    needed to get the right
    beam patterns. And of course a rotating radar scanner made of water seems
    even less likely.
