Title: RE: Microwave...
I recall that when I was working in Bangalore, India, another multinational company (I think it was Siemens but I can't recall definitively) had to poison the vultures that consistently perched on their microwave dish to get reliable point to point. Given the complete non-regulation of spectrum out there, at least once we had another provider clash with our spectrum, forcing us to flip the dips until we found a clear one. However, when it worked, it was incredibly solid.
Chocolate bars in India were usually melted already when you bought them. ;)
 Sometimes they would clash physically with us when they mounted extra dishes on the tower in the downtown location - as in, some guy standing on our dish to mount his.
