A while ago my controller stopped indicating the antenna direction, although 
everything was OK otherwise. Significant messing around later I found that a 
drive belt in the controller had perished. To my amazement I found a source of 
the correct belt and now it works fine again.


The direction indication was a printed translucent sheet held between two 
transparent pieces of polycarbonate. Disassembling the unit to fit the new belt 
made the translucent sheet fall apart - it was after all at least 20 years old. 
I was able to draw a replacement sheet pretty much exactly as the original, but 
I can't find the proper material to print it on. If I use a transparency it is 
much too light and the works of the controller are clearly visible though it. 
If I use paper, the back illumination emphasises the grain in the paper and it 
looks really amateurish.

Any suggestions for the best material to use? I use an inkjet printer, but if 
laser is necessary I could take it to a shop for printout. Thanks for any help.
