AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL: The Automatic range can operate from the press of a button, they take all the hard work out of locating the correct satellite and adjust to accept the strongest signal therefore the best picture. The manual range require a bit more input and set up from the operator.
SIZE: Satellites are geostationary (orbit at the identical speed to the Earths rotation) so they remain fixed, just above the equator. The satellite that broadcasts the signal for UK television is concentrated towards the middle of the UK therefore the further from the signal beam you travel(North or South) the larger the Dish you need. Dishes start at 50cm and go up to 85cm.
SKEW: The other consideration is East/West, because of the Earths Curvature, the further around the latitude you travel, the further the LNB needs to be Skewed. This is because, Satellites prefer signal in vertical or horizontal planes and as you travel around the curvature, the signal rotates. We supply manual or auto skew dishes.
SMART: This SMART function ‘knows’ which channels are broadcast on which satellites so you just have to select or switch to the channel you want and the antenna will point automatically to the correct satellite
EASY: This gives a Protective cover to LNB arms
Reception of TV and Radio signals broadcast by the 5 groups of satellites is guaranteed within the darker (Foot-Print) areas.
It should be remembered that signals become weaker when the sky is overcast or rainy, and this could lead to images with macroblocks, or the images could even disappear.
When choosing the satellite system to be installed on your vehicle, make sure the dimensions of the parabola are suited for receiving the satellite signals in your viewing area.
