This is a Satgear Premium Kit - the best quality portable satellite dish and tripod kit you can buy. It even includes the best portable receiver and LNB combination on the market - the Easyfind system. This has everything you need to watch TV while you're away from home, except the TV of course

Why you should consider a portable satellite kit for your caravanning / camping trips?

  • Crystal clear picture - you won't believe the fantastic picture quality!
  • Quick to setup - our kits are pre-built and ready to go

What did we think?

From the point of ordering the service was superb and the unit arrived, vey well packaged to protect it, within a couple of working days.  Upon receipt of the box we checked all the contents and all was as it should be.

The unit is as described and very easy to set up.  The legs just pop down and click into place, the arm for the LNB simply clicks in. The legs and the dish supporting arm simply lock into each other and the dish is secured by a few bolts. We had the unit set up in a matter of minutes

Then we came to fixing the dish onto the satellite and locating the signal, anyone who has tried this can know had hard it can be if you are not well practised in it, which I am not.  The kit comes with full instructions advising you at what angle to point the point the dish and the rough direction. They even supply a compass to assist with this.  On the back of the dish bracket are the angles embossed in, this helps immensely when aiming the dish to the sky.

Once located and the box fired into life, we were happy to sit and watch the wide variety of free to air channels that the box receives.

Disassembly was only a few minutes and it all packed away neatly into its own large black carry case to ensure no parts are misplaced.  Overall a great unit and perfect for a quick setup and take down time.
