Roadpro Static Satellite TV Domes
With all the advantages of a Roadpro "The old Camos" dome automatic satellite TV system. This makes it ideal for caravanners, motorcaravanners and boaters who just want to switch on their satellite TV system, sit back and relax. With the Roadpro System can be used whilst vehicle is stationary.
The Roadpro system runs on 12 and 24 volts and uses less than 2 Amps when searching and none at all when the satellite has been located.
It can pick up TV & radio from SKY & other broadcasters all over Europe (as with any satellite TV system, what you receive will depend on where you are and what type of receiver you use) thanks to its ability to find 7 different satellites. A SKY digibox or any other satellite receiver can be connected to the Roadpro system.
GPS Positioning enables your satellite system to know exactly where it is at any time. It helps your dish to lock on to a satellite signal quicker than non GPS systems.
This is because the broadcasting satellites are in a geo-stationary orbit (they spin at the same speed as the Earth) and as such are considered to be in a fixed place. If your dish knows where it is, it also knows where the satellite is, cutting out needless search time.
Skew refers to the rotation of the LNB (Low Noise Block) to compensate for the curvature of the Earth. A few degrees of Skew can make all the difference between a good signal or no signal at all in fringe areas or bad weather.
The procedure of skewing can be tricky in manual operation and often means a trip onto the roof, with Auto-Skew the hard work is done for you so quickly it’s unlikely you’ll even know its occurred
