Any one got any recommendations for a good handheld digital satellite MPEG-2/4 meter something I can hang round my neck as finding the Satlook a bit on the heavy side at 5.5 Kgs its like having a lap top hanging round your neck .

Hi sub101uk! The Satlink WS-6933 I mentioned in your other thread Friday weighs only 369 grams (.369kg) or .813 pounds. It is very easy to work with. :)

Yes that size would be nice and much better than the SatLook FTA its 5.5 Kgs to hang round your neck , Been looking at the WS-6979 that should be ok I think any thing is better than the Satlook due to its weight .

No experience with that one. It's out of my price range at about four times what the WS-6933 cost me. Can't spend too much or the other half will balk! :D

Yes I have put the old Satlook FTA MK IV up for sale as I do have a few other sat meters and scopes but the SatLook should go for about £100 - £150 new I think I paid over £447 but that was in 2007 but its no good to hang round your neck .But the WS-6979 is very small and light .The picture is my Luly C Band scope its handy to find new satellites . I only have problems with the XYL when the tower is down and she wants to cut the grass .
