Man beams 5,000 radio, TV channels with a dozen satellite receivers

“(C)ome to Al Jessup’s house where his 5,000-plus radio and television stations from around the world beamed in by his 12 satellite dishes are bound to keep you entertained somehow…

“Over the years, the 54-year-old disabled former ice cream salesman collected more and more dishes so he could pick up more and more ‘ree to air’ channels. Neighbors, he said, never complained about his large display of dishes in front of his house. In fact, some of his dishes were hand-me-downs from his neighbors.

“The last time he counted, he received more than 5,000 channels. He has stopped counting since… ‘It’s just interesting to watch stations from far away.'” Photo by Lew Whitener/The Register-Herald
