What size is the dish ? Do you need a decoder if you have a Foxtel box and your home Foxtel is via satellite ? Is a directional finder included ? What is the total cost of dish, tripod, directional finder, carry case & decoder [ if required ], In other words, total package cost.
This is the dish system only. If you're looking for a complete Optima T2 satellite kit without the decoder (you supply your pay TV decoder), have a look at this link - https://www.satplus.com.au/products/optima-t2-mobile-pay-tv-satellite-kit
Do you have the height x width x length of the dish in the storage bag and the same for the tripod? I need to check storage options in my van. Also is the LNB a single or dual one?
Measurement in the bags are (L x W x H):
Dish - 75cm x 13 x 46
Tripod - 77cm x 18 x 18
The standard issue LNB we supply is a single output however we can convert this to a twin output unit on the dish at no extra charge. You would however require twin coaxial cable from the dish to the van as well as a twin wallplate to get through the van wall (additional cost).
Can I purchase the Optima 75T dish without the tripod stand section?
The Optima T2 dish has a mast diameter of 40mm and fits into an acetyl collar on the tripod with diameter of 40.25 mm and has a slot cut into it with a locking band and cam lever that tensions the collar to lock up the direction. This makes it a perfect fit. You would be hard pressed to find a tube that it would fit into properly unless we supply the collar and locking band/cam. We can supply the dish with the acetyl sleeve and locking cam and you can source a 50mm mast with 2mm wall thickness or we can supply the mast. This will make the ID of the tube 46mm and with a small amount of sanding the collar will fit perfectly. We will be offering the Optima T2 with drawbar pole option in the new year. Please call after the 9th when we get back.
Can I get a 2 cable LNB for foxtel iq
You certainly can and we don't charge any extra for this. If you do order one, please write in the comments that you require a twin output LNB fitted with twin cabling on the dish.
