I agree, but


Explanation:
it all depends on the text. Is antenna parabolica used in its technical meaning? If so, the technical term is appropriate. I have the feeling that Pietra is not translating a technical manual, but a promotional text about a small village, where perhaps there are "antenne paraboliche" everywhere.

All the best to all,
Paola
