Hi Jake,jakefouro said:Hi,
Just got my hands on an old motorhome, a hymer s700 and it has a Kathreim diamond shaped dish/antenna which can be moved about from inside the van. As a complete newbie to this, can someone tell me what I can connect to this - is it a sat receiver or analogue aerial? Can I connect a digital sat. receiver to it to view free to air channels?I am located in southern Ireland.
Any advice welcome.
Depending upon the age of the satellite system, it may be analogue only, or if fitted with a universal LNB, it should be digital. It should be connected to a receiver, (if installed). Our 99 Hymer came with an analogue receiver which we ditched, and replaced with a digital one.
Click on Kathrein, click on "Planar Antennas", then click on BAS 60 or BAS 65, using the Union Flag to download the info.
We see a lot of MH's in France and Germany, using these Kathrein and Globesat dishes, but not many in the British Isles or Ireland.
