SatKing Promax Automatic Satellite Dish for Caravan
Very happy with my Sat King Pro installation and it works really well as long as it’s not raining . Left Perth WA camped at Geraldton and the heavens opened up with real heavy rain and no problem with Sat King Pro reception , travelled another 600 Klms north to Carnarvon WA rained the first night and lost reception, next day was fine no problem with reception. Suppose I will just have to suck it up when it rains or does anyone had the problem and solved it
Hi Peter and thank you for your review. Wet weather definitely has a negative impact on satellite reception, particularly when heading into remote WA as the satellite signal is already quite weak around there. You'll find as you get up to the Kimberley region that it is even more affected but then as you get closer to Darwin the signal improves and is more robust even in wet weather. Happy travels.
Great to have a chat today and to receive the positive feedback about the great performance of the Promax on your trip across the Nullarbor plain to NSW and up through western QLD and down the middle of Australia.
As mentioned on the phone if you could let me know when you travelled and stopped roughly at each location and that you were watching all channels in these locations. This would be great feedback for other potential Promax customers and we would place this on our website. A picture of your van in one of these locations (great if you could see the Promax in the pic if possible, but it is ok if not) would be placed with the post.
Our travels started in Perth over the nullabor Through S Aust to Broken Hill.From there over to Willcania then on the dirt up the west road following the Darling River.From there to Bourke then over the border to Cunnamulla.From there east to Brisbane.
After Brissy we travelled to Roma then up towards Emerald.Through to Longreach Winton and on to Mount Isa.
From Mt Isa we headed to the border at Camowheel and onto Barkley roadhouse and 3 ways to the Stuart hwy. to head to Alice Springs.
After a stay at Alice we headed to yalara or Ayres Rock After that we tackled the longest short cut in Australia on the Great Central Road to Laverton in W A.
This road is about 1200 ks in length through the Gibson desert.Len Beddels country.We passed through the communities od Docker River Warakurna Warburton Tjukayirla to Laverton
Fitted the satking to last motorhome,had no trouble and impressed with whole setup mainly in Carnarvon were I could get reception but the guy behind me with his 5k sat was not getting a solid lock,will be buying another one for our latest motorhome. grahame 0417430649
