Want to have reception even when you head off-grid? Why not get yourself Satellie coverage. The SatKing Pro Max Fully automatic motorised satellite TV dish system is the most advanced system on the Australian market, utilising the latest in flat panel antenna design. This motorised satellite system suits Foxtel and VAST satellite TV. The unit has dual LNB outputs to suit twin tuner STB’s like Foxtel IQ/Austar MyStar and VAST twin tuner receivers.
The SatKing Pro Max is very simple to use simply turn the unit on and the built in GPS system will locate your required satellite very fast. Another great benefit of having a built in GPS system is that if you forget to return the unit to the home position the motorised dish will automatically retract once the vehicle is travelling above 10Kph (the unit does require 12v or 24v power).
Flat panel satellite antennas also take up a great deal less space on the roof of your van leaving you with more choices for the exact location on your roof in between solar panels and air conditioners. Flat panel satellite TV antennas offer higher signal gain than equivalent size offset round type satellite TV dishes. The SatKing Pro Max moves on 3 axis meaning the old days of having to manually get up on the roof of the van to adjust LNB skew (turning the LNB clockwise or anti clockwise) when you are travelling from say Melbourne across to Adelaide and then to Perth are gone. The complete head of the antenna simply adjust automatically for you. Automatic skew will also improve the signal quality to assist you further.
The Promax can receive both DVBS and DVBS2 transponders (SD & HD MPEG4), this means the Promax can actually tune to all transponders available on both Optus C1 and D3. The added bonus of having the DVBS2 tuner already built in is that when Foxtel goes completely MPEG4 the Promax will continue to work (VAST is already MPEG4). Many other units on the market only can tune to the older MPEG2 signals, that is fine today but in the future you will have problems.
