You only need to take a quick glance at the Optima-T2 to see it's different from any other mobile satellite dish in the world. Take a closer look though and see how unique this dish really is. What makes this dish so desirable for the RV market? Let's take a closer look.
You demand the best brand names when you buy your van, tyres, battery, fridge, bullbar and accessories. Why not demand the best name in satellite TV? Optima by SatPlus - designed, manufactured and assembled in Australia.
Satellite TV is the only solution to bad TV reception so why not purchase the ultimate trouble free system? Compare for yourself, our system to others on the Australian market. We've worked hard for the last three years to bring you a product that is durable and functional with leading edge design and utilising the highest quality materials never seen before in a mobile RV sat TV system.
Compression moulded fibreglass dish reflectors fitted with stainless steel hinges. 3mm thick panels for the ultimate in strength and durability. No warping out of shape or corrosion typical of cheap, imported steel dishes.

When re-designing the Optima-T2, one of the most important factors we considered was that the dish must not have any separate parts. No removable LNB arm, no brackets to fit, no wingnuts and definitely no tools required. Our Optima-T2 features a fold out, telescopic LNB arm that is extended by pressing a stainless steel release button and extending the arm so the button locks into the upper locating hole. Simple, strong and quick to setup. And, it's made from anodised aluminium so no corrosion issues when using on the beach. Just a quick wash down with fresh water after use.
Getting a satellite system to work is easy. Three settings need to be understood and the first is the rotational position of the device on the front of the dish known as the LNB. We'll provide a detailed map of Australia showing the position of the LNB depending on your location. Simply rotate the LNB according to our zone map.
The second setting is the elevation. ALL dishes supplied in Australia are made overseas and are designed for permanent mounting on a house roof. Drop this on a tripod and call it a mobile satellite system? Try adjusting the elevation of these crude dishes. Not only are they inaccurate but they're also difficult to adjust and impossible to read. The Optima-T2 features a stainless steel sliding rod mechanism that is smooth and accurate. Locate the satellite and tighten the stainless steel knob to instantly lock the dish. Simple and effective. With etched, easy to read scale, you'll align in minutes maybe even seconds !

The third setting is azimuth or direction. Adjusting the Optima-T2 is easy. Simply rotate the dish until signal is received then lock up the cam lever.
Equally as important as the functional features above is the fold in half design. This means you get all of the performance of a satellite dish measuring 83cm x 72cm when in the open position yet only 41cm tall when folded away into its padded storage bag. With over 700 of these systems - version T1 (as of 25/01/16) in operation throughout Australia and glowing reports of signal performance in the remotest parts of WA, we're delighted to offer you Australia's most compact satellite system.

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.
