Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of satellite and how does it compare with normal antennas?


Satellite reception is available Australia-wide and is not affected by the usual sources of interference that typically interrupts terrestrial (local antenna) reception, such as weather patterns, mountains, even the earth's curvature.

Satellites have none of these restrictions. Programs can come from next door, or half way around the world with picture perfect digital quality. Best of all, because you own your satellite system, there are no monthly fees for free-to-air TV anywhere in Australia. Campersat can also work with other satellite services, such as Pay TV.


Does the VAST receiver come in 12v?

Yes. Our satking Travel pack comes with 240 V operation and 12 V cable .

You can have many hours or days of happy TV viewing on a normal battery charge.

 

Does the picture quality vary across the country?

No. The broadcast is digital, so the picture will always be free of 'ghosting' and 'snow'. The picture quality will remain perfect unless there is insufficient signal to operate the receiver, in which case you may experience a 'signal dropout' where the signal will go temporarily blank. Your standard Campersat dish (75 cm) is big enough to give you excellent reception all around Australia. Signals are weaker in Australia's far north-east and south-west, as well as during heavy rain or dense overcast conditions.

 

What are the benefits of satellite and how does it compare with normal antennas?

Satellite reception is not affected by the usual sources of interference that typically interrupts terrestrial (local antenna) reception. These can be caused by weather patterns, topography such as mountains or buildings, local electrical interference, even the earth's curvature can interfere with great picture and sound.

Satellites have none of these restrictions. Best of all, because you own your satellite system, there are no monthly fees.


Understanding LNBs

The LNB - the bit in front of the dish, is probably the most important piece of high tech electronics in your satellite system.

It is important that this unit matches the required performance of each receiver connected. Some European LNB's are not compatible with receivers used by Australian service providers. If in doubt just ask. All Campersat systems are designed with this in mind.


Satellite Pay TV

If you are already a subscriber and want to take your subscription on the road, make sure the satellite system you purchase has a dish and LNB that is compatible with your Pay TV receiver and that you get the equipment you need to connect the pay system to your free-to-air equipment. Campersat customers have access to our expert advice, can purchase specialist products which connect free-to-air and Pay TV, and we understand the compatibility requirements between dish, LNB and receivers.
