dear sir how much does this weigh.thankyou Dave Thomas.
The SatKing Promax weighs 20KG on the roof. It would be best to mount it near the edge of the van for extra strength or over the internal wall of the ensuite (if applicable).
How does the coverage areas of the Promax compare with other auto satellite dishs eg oyster or sphere? Paul
Good question. SatKing have worked with the South Korean manufacturer to fine tune the Promax so that it locks on in some of the worst satellite signal areas in Australia. The worst areas are North Western WA Kimberley region, Kununnurra and inland south of there as well as select areas of Central Australia and Northern QLD. Have a look at the Optus coverage map listed on our website here - https://www.satplus.com.au/collections/roof-mounted-satellite-systems/products/satking-promax-automatic-satellite-dish
Over the years we have sold many automatic systems across three brands and all three have had issues locking on in parts of Australia. The Promax, like the Oyster have the added advantage over the Sphere of being able to be finely tuned in poor signal areas. So, if you are experiencing a lot of picture break up you can enter the manual tuning mode and improve the signal quality. This is a definite advantage. The Promax features GPS for faster signal lock and auto shut down if the van moves over 10 kph so this is a nice feature. Whereas the Oyster and Sphere need to be connected to an ignition source if you want auto shut down should you forget to close the dish and this is not always possible in a caravan.
There can be no doubt though that the Oyster with its large 85cm reflector and the ability to select a location close to you within the menu should enable it to outperform the Promax but this would only apply in these lower signal areas as per the map. In most locations, the Promax will provide exceptional performance and offer reliable service.
An added benefit of the Promax over ALL roof mounted satellite dishes os the wind load. In moderate winds, most traditional systems should be closed whereas the Promax is unaffected.
The Promax is also heavier than traditional systems but less space required too. SatKing have been communicating with a customer who has been travelling in very remote WA and the system has been working well. Areas travelled by customer are below. However, we still are reserved and prefer to state 95% coverage of land mass with low or no coverage in some spots.
Kununurra WA Halls Creek WA Fitzroy Crossing WA Albany WA Eighty Mile Beach WA Various Roadside camps WA Port Headland WA Karratha WA Currently in Carnarvon WA and now travelling to Tom Price and back to the NT. She had all channels in all locations, just one roadside camp that had lots of big trees and the unit would not lock.
