    Hey guys, I bought two of these with the thought of using one for a base station, which I have and then one mobile in my truck. However, I have decided to go another route and have a like-new rig available. Will let it go for a real good price to a forum ham...if not then QRZ. PM me if you...

    40/20 meter QSO/Net for Satguys hams

    I do know that there are quite a few hams on this forum and was wondering if there is any interest in a forum QSO/Net? I would organize it but I live in an HOA and my magnetic loop does not quite cut it.... 73 Jim K4ECP Sent from my iPhone using the SatelliteGuys app!

    DirecTV Uplink Site?

    I am in the Tucson, AZ area this week doing some work on Lasik Lasers and once again I have stumbled upon something cool. It's a DirecTV uplink site I believe. Five big-ass dishes and one that is quite a bit larger than the other four. The big one appears to be steerable, don't know about the...

    I travel a lot for work and would like to be able to stream the Mio to remote locations. I don't want to go the slingbox route. Has anyone played with OpenVPN? I have a subscription to Nord which is a VPN provider and have installed OpenVPN on my laptop. I also have OpenVPN installed on the...

    OS mio 4K

    I received my box yesterday and started to play immediately! Set-up was very simple and only took a few minutes until it was ready to go. Blindscan seems to be faster that the VU+ Zero 4K but service scan seems to take quite a bit longer. I scanned three satellites 103W, 91W and 87W and the...

    103W Ku 12080 / H / 30000

    Have noticed for the last several days this transponder quality is all over the place...swinging from 30-85%. All other transponders are very steady quality wise here in NM. Anyone else noticing this?
