    As per the title...

    It's been a bit windy today and when I was outside just now I noticed a quite perceptible wobble at the LNB end as the wind caught the dish - probably half a centimetre at least.

    Now I know the dishes aren't the most aerodynamic objects, but should there be much movement when caught by moderately strong winds, or should they be rock solid barring a gale?
