The camping boom continues: More and more people are traveling around UK, Europe, sometimes even all over the world with their own camper. In particular, those who are traveling with the camper for a longer period of time or who have found their permanent place ask themselves the question: How can I receive my TV and radio programs in the camper? Our answer: With the SKYRIDER 65, a satellite receiver unit specially designed for camping and motorhomes, which guarantees you the huge variety of TV and radio via satellite, even on the go.
The heart of the SKYRIDER 65 is the controller unit, a small box that you can place in the motorhome. On the one hand, the unit is connected to the satellite antenna on the roof - on the other hand, you also connect your receiving devices such as satellite receivers or televisions to the controller unit. With the SKYRIDER 65 with single LNB you can supply a receiver / television with satellite signals, with the variant with twin LNB it is possible to supply two receivers / televisions at the same time. And all of it fully automatically.
When you park the motorhome, the satellite reception can be easily activated via the controller unit. The satellite antenna is raised at the push of a button. Of course, only in the park position. When you are driving, the antenna remains on the roof when folded, protected from wind and low bridges. By coupling it to the caravan ignition, you can be sure that the antenna will not raise when you are driving.
As soon as the antenna has straightened up, it automatically begins to align itself with the position of the desired satellite. This takes a maximum of three minutes - afterwards you receive TV and radio programs in excellent quality. The ASTRA 28.2 satellite is preset in the controller unit. You can receive most of the English-language programs known in this country via this satellite position. A total of 10 pre-programmed satellites are available for the reception of foreign programs.
SKYRIDER 65: Installation is that easy.
The SKYRIDER set - consisting of a 65 cm large, high-quality, powder-coated aluminum SATMAN 65 satellite antenna that is attached to a motorized bracket - can be assembled directly with your camping partner. For this purpose, a carrier plate is first attached to the roof using an industrial adhesive. The satellite antenna and bracket are securely attached to this carrier plate. Now set up the power supply for the motorized antenna via the ignition of the camper and route the satellite cable from the LNB of the antenna inside the camper to the controller unit - and the basic installation of the SKYRIDER 65 is ready.
