Our long awaited SF3239 satellite finder. This new meter redefines the term 'satfinder'. This meter is pre-programmed for the Optus C1 satellite and is ready to lock on to the VAST service on this satellite. You can of course use it for pay TV as well. The meter will positively identify the correct satellite and will ignore all of the others so you get the right one every time. The SF3239 has an easy to read LCD screen (easy to see in bright sunlight) with a great signal strength and quality readout that will only register a signal and beep when you hit the right spot. If you already have a sat system and find it difficult or time consuming trying to lock on each time then the SF3239 is for you. Screenshots below and an excellent video as well.
For the user who wants to search for other satellites, the SF3239 is fully programmable and can be used on any other satellite if required. Simply browse through the satellite list and choose whichever satellite you want to find. You can edit transponders, edit satellite names and edit the LNB frequency if need be. All in all, it's a fully functional finder that rivals other meters at twice the price. By default, the meter is setup for Optus C1 so if you only want to use it for VAST, Foxtel, Austar or Aurora then it's ready straight out of the box !

I purchased my SF3239 Satellite finder late 2012
after discussions with John.
It became faulty early this week and a call to John just as he was finishing work for the day had a replacement delivered to my door in less than 24 hours.
In my opinion John and his company unlike most companies are people conscious
Australia needs more companies like Sat Plus.

I ordered it on sunday(after it got a mention from one of the members at Austech,where I'm a member also),received it on Tuesday and today,wednesday done the first test.
A 20 ltr bucket with a PVC pipe concreted in it, in the backyard.A 65 cm KU dish,Sharp 10700 LNB, everything loose, got C1 in 1 minute,after changed to INS 19 ,15 seconds.
I used a Trimax SDM2200 before,with a beeper in line,took me 1/2 hr to get chinasat 6b on a 1.6 mtr mesh.
1 Trimax will be for sale shortly.
I am Impressed.

We had had a manual sat dish for our caravan for about 3 months and we had heaps of trouble trying to get a good signal on the correct satellite. This equipment was introduced to us in Albany WA by another caravaner. Within 2 hrs we had it ordered and within 3 days it was delivered to the Albany Post Office. It is great. We get the correct satellite each and every time and only takes about 2 minutes to get the best signal. We love it !

This satalite finder makes it so easy to set up my dish, as mine is set to find only optus C1. it makes it very simple to line up, no confusion with other satalites.
Also as it can be powered from batteries there is no need to connect the Vast box to the dish till you have found the satalite.

I finally got to do a caravan install with the SF239. Oh my god how great is this device. My 75 year old customer installed his first complete minimax setup in under 5 minutes.
I have to put that down to great products and my great training LOL. The SF239 is so easy, simple, and clear. Great stuff.

Have set up the system in my mobile home and registed with Mysat and eveything is working perfectly.
The sat finder is so simple and the system takes very little time to set up
Thank you for your attention, they say the best form of advertising is word of mouth and at this stage thats what I will be doing.
