TRAVELSAT MOBILE VAST TV SATELLITE KIT
The reflector is elliptical and it measures 83cm x 75cm. It has a rolled edge for extra strength and is zinc coated then painted.
The rear bracket is a winning design that is easily adjusted for different elevations around Australia. We fit all bolts with wingnuts so no tools are required.
The elevation assembly has 5 degree increments stamped on the side so you can adjust the elevation according to the charts we supply.
The main LNB support arm is removable for easy storage by loosening off the knob on the back.
A BONUS padded dish bag is included and protects all of the components. It has internal pockets for the small components, padding all round and enough room to store the cables too.
The dish in the TravelSat kit is mounted on the included tripod.
A sturdy tripod is included which has adjustable legs for uneven ground, bubble level and peg holes in the feet. This weighs about 4.5KG and packs down to 600mm.
DIGITAL SATELLITE METER
We include as part of this offer, an SK500 DIGITAL pre-programmed satellite meter that will beep when you hit the CORRECT satellite and will ignore all the other satellites in the sky so you only pickup the right one everytime. Furthermore, with its backlit display and easy to read signal bars you can fine tune the dish for maximum signal and then disconnect the meter. We include cable joiners that take place of the meter after the dish has been aligned. No batteries required either as the meter gets its power from the included satellite decoder (set top box) via the coaxial cable.
OPTIONAL UPGRADE - HANDHELD 3240 DIGITAL SATELLITE METER
Some customers prefer a self powered handheld meter which enables them to setup the dish with only the meter connected. This eliminates the need to connect the coaxial cable from the van during the line up stage. Our 3240 handheld digital satellite meter is rechargeable and super sensitive too. So when you're moving the dish while searching for the satellite, the 3240 will slowly beep when weak satellite signal is being received then get faster as you fine tune for maximum signal. Super easy to operate too, simply flick the slide switch on the top and the 3240 will go straight to the search screen. As soon as you 'hit' the satellite, the meter will display SAT FOUND, showing SIGNAL QUALITY as a percentage measurement and will also beep to alert you. Then, when fine tuned for maximum signal, simply switch it back off. With a full charge, you can expect around 4 hours of power. Comes complete with a power pack recharger, basic compass and instructions. We have a sample video HERE of the 3240 meter. Choose from the options above whether you wish to upgrade to the 3240 or include as standard, the 3239.
CLEARSAT 3240 SCREENSHOTS
This is a screenshot of the meter when first turned on. We have modified the software so that it starts up and goes straight to the alignment screen. Notice no SIGNAL QUALITY and the NO SAT label.
Now when connected to our dish and aligned correctly you'll see the SIGNAL QUALITY is high and the label now reads SAT FOUND....easy. Visit our YouTube channel to view a demonstration video on the ClearSat 3240
UPDATE: 13/02/15 New software with big bold easy to read signal bars.
Supplied as standard, RG6 quad shield cable @ 10 metre length. This is to connect from your satellite dish to the caravan wallplate. Our cable is professional grade as used by pay TV installers. Each end is fitted with weatherproof compression fittings by us. As we also fit our dishes with a short coaxial cable used to connect the meter, we include cable joiners for when the meter has been removed.
EZIPLATE WEATHERPROOF WALL FITTING
You'll need a way to connect that external coaxial cable in through your van wall. The included BONUS EziPlate can adjust to wall thickness up to 35mm and is a direct, no loss connection from outside to in. You may already have something similar but unless it is a direct connection with no joins or splitter in between then it will not work. This is now a standard inclusion and comes complete with internal 1.0m coaxial cable. Please note that WineGard external wallplates will NOT work with satellite.
SATKING 800CA VAST DECODER
The SatKing 800CA VAST (Viewer Access Satellite Television) is undoubtedly the best decoder for use in a caravan and motorhome. Its small size and low power consumption makes it well suited for RV use. 12V and 240V operation coupled with features like PVR ready (recording direct to an external USB drive), easy to use on-screen menus, IR sensor port (so you can hide the decoder away in a cupboard and have the sensor outside the cupboard), HDMI output and more. You'll get access to the complete range of free to air Australian TV channels anywhere in Australia. Bonus HDMI cable is included to connect to your TV.
12V CIGARETTE LEAD
The SatKing VAST decoder comes complete with a 240V power supply and BONUS 12V lead.
Everything makes sense when concise instructions are included. Our TravelSat manual will assist you with directions, elevation angles as well as decoder screenshots and more.
The TravelSat system has been around for many years and aside from a few upgrades, the dish has remained the same. It's a proven system that's durable and high performance and will give you years of trouble free operation.
