A 3.8 meter PRODELIN Antenna weights less than a small car at 2500lbs.

Yes id does have to be heavy the back axle is down it would not be if it was not needed it slows you down and eats fuel.
Did not know that either, thanks.


Hrm, my work gets closed container truck beds, and we don't have anything heavy on them. Most of the time, the axle sits high, but we got one in that was as really low for no good reason. There was nothing heavy in the shipment--in fact it was one of the lighter ones we've had in months. It was just a randomly low truck bed. So I know from experience that something will come in that's way too low to be like the others, with no good reason for it--fuel efficient or not. So, are there other reasons for this?

Let's say you have 3 trips to make across town, and the same "bed" is going to be used. the 1st and 3rd are going to be the required weight to need them, but the middle one is going to be lightweight. Could you see someone not changing this out or changing the configuration, for any host of reasons?

Also, It may not be fuel efficient, but it gets you under low bridgework without damaging the thing transported. This thing is "tall". Would you burn fuel to take the most expedient route with the low bridges?

Ok I see what you are getting at that one laod may be lighter and they didn't want to rise the back axles, however these are hydrolic and only require the flip of a handle. The raising and lowering of the trailer takes place at the neck and in front of the back stationary axles. Also at least in the states around me it is illegal to have the back axles down when they are not needed.

They have cops escort it because it's wider than one lane. Have you ever seen houses being moved?


Exactly .. WRONG... Cops don't do these type of escorts unless requested by ... AN TRANSPORTATION ESCORT COMPANY.. My uncle works for one of these escort companies and they have specifically marked vehicles identifying them as escorts for wide loads such as houses, or enormous boats, fuel tanks or otherwise.. if its too big for the road they call the cops to block traffic .. THAT IS IT! the cops don't escort for sh|t!@

If that's a satellite dish, the satellite must be on Mars...

These are pictures of a unlimited hydroplane being transported. The reason it is at an angle is because they are over 100 inches wide and if laid flat would need special permits to haul

I suppose it could be other of things, and not necessarily ONLY either a satellite dish or a flying saucer, such as the bit for one of these things -- a rock boring machine. The bit (also called the "shield") is labeled as part #2 in this image:



I'm not saying this is what it is, but I'm just pointing out that it could be something other than either a satellite dish or a flying saucer.

No not a Hydroplane either although good call on the hauling technique. Hydroplane trailers are much smaller and do not weight nearly enough to load down that trailer pictured.

It could be a multiple of different objects
- Satellite dish
- parts for machinery
- something for stage show for Vegas

But on the other hand, they usually don't have a police escort.......
hiding in plane sight.

They do if the load is much wider than one traffic lane.

Yes -- there are several Earthly non-alien things it could be.

If it is a wide load (which this appears to be), then they sometimes use an escort. Sometimes they hire an escort company and sometimes I have seen police escorting wide loads.

I'm not sure about Nevada's DOT laws concerning wide loads, but I know that in some places if that wide load is about to go through more densely populated streets (such as a more urban highway), then the police often provide escort.

It's illegal to go over the speed limit. I find that some truckers do it every time they're on the road. Legality doens't make a winning argument. (But what about the Popo being right there? Do you know how many times the police don't know All THE RULES needed to do their job?)

But I'll be the first to admit that "When it is easy change, why don't they?" is a very strong argument.

Cities and parishes (counties) will hold laws that go beyond what the state does, quite often. So, there's more laws to plumb for this one.

This is true too. In WY the HP's are extremely knowledgeable about haul weights ect. some even have portable weight stations that they lay out under the axles. But yes legality is not a good argument accept the police are right there helping.

Police escorts are not required where I live, either (Pennsylvania), but I still see them escorting wide loads from time-to-time. In Pennsylvania you can use a police escort (and pay a fee for it) instead of hiring a private firm.

That load in the OP's photos is taking up two lanes of traffic. It seems according to the NDOT rules, an escort vehicle of some sort is required -- plus it seemed that according to those rules the police reserve the right to restrict the way wide loads are moved depending on specific circumstances. Perhaps the police decided there were circumstances with this wide load that required their attention (and I mean mundane Earthly reasons).

You seem to be arguing that it should be totally ruled out that the police were there because it was a wide load, as if police never escort wide loads. I'm just saying that isn't necessarily so.

OK, Kiddies.
Today we look at shapes. Do you know what "flights of fancy" means?

Radar Dish

Satellite Dish 1

Standard Parabolic Antenna

Satellite Dish with critical angle 1


Satellite Dish 2

Polar Mount

You will notice that each of the examples show a dish with a critical angled mount. For larger Satellite dishes, a sturdier frame is needed to hold lateral angle stable in winds. For smaller dishes wind is not as critical an issue, so mounts have less bulk to them. Usually a single pole or simple tube mount. This is a larger dish, and might be a microwave communication dish that never changes it's angle or position to it's sending dish.

The mount in the images the OP is showing, has a simple angled box frame attached permanently to the dish and cannot be removed, so they had to carry it with the dish overhanging the bed and cannot exert any stresses on the dish shape that under a stress load from any angle would warp it in the heat of the Las Vegas desert.. They had to cover the dish, because like a telescope mirror, irregularities in the surface can deflect signal to the center receiving unit suspended at the focal of the parabolic curve of the dish. Hitting a bird or rock kicked up from a vehicle could dent or damage the smooth surface they need for smooth reflection to the sensor. It looks like the sensor receiving unit is removed, and the spider-mount is bulking out the cover giving it a elliptical or "flying saucer" shape.

IMHO, I think this is a satellite dish going to a large facility in the only way it can. Police are "hired" to apply to federal highway safety requirements so to keep motorists at a safe distance. Usually people ignore a flag truck, but as this takes both lanes and therefore might require more official spotters and safety enforcement than a simple wide load.

98% guess.

Was this using an Elephant gun on an Amoeba?

joining this thread a little late but have a few questions.

Why didn't your "friend" who took these pictures decide to follow them until he could determine where they were going? In my mind that would be a good way to determine what it could possibly be...

I'm not sure if your friend even really thinks this could be a flying saucer...I'm sure if he thought it was he would have followed them until he couldn't anymore...until they turned off on some obscure road to a military base or whether they turned into a development for a new "UFO themed casino"...

Other people had to have been on that road with it?
Surely more pictures of it will show up on the internet?
Everyone these days has a camera on their phone or a camera with them...someone else had to of seen it as a "kodak moment" worthy of posting on the net?

Maybe it's a great big government "who gives a f*** anymore?" Maybe they all thought - "you know... it's Vegas. Everyone is just going to think we are on our way to Hollywood. Lets just get this beast out now and get home for dinner. I don't feel like babysitting it all day and toting it all night."
Plus... again... it's Vegas. It's the same during the day or night... everyone is awake.
