This portable satellite dish is well made and easy to set up and use. The tripod is very strong and stable and incorporates a swivel top for ease of adjustment. Instructions are good, although the direction of the lnb skew is not unambiguous. If you set the dish up for the first time and it does not work despite a strong signal reading from the meter, then you have probably applied the skew in the wrong direction, as I did. Once I had corrected that everything worked fine. The bag is strong and well made and everything fits in it, not just the dish as with some bags. This is an easy to use and quality item.

As someone who knows little about satellite TV, I was a bit unsure as to whether to buy this or just buy a TV aerial for when we go camping. I've spent many hours waving TV aerials about, so thought I might as well have a go at satellites.

The kit came in a massive box but, for those of us going camping, it seems to all fit in a bag not much larger than the 54cm dish. My only concern is that there is no 'padding' and I can see the dish getting scrached and dented unless I'm very careful. I think I'll find some foam from somewhere and use it to protect the dish/stand. For campers it's also worth noting that it comes with pegs to stope the stand from moving anywhere in the wind.

As to putting the dish up and tuning it in ... well, it was suprisingly easy. I put the dish on the stand, pointed it in roughly the right direction, and turned on the satellite receiver. The satellite finder started beeping immediately and a minute later I had a good enough signal to pick up all the Freesat signals I could think of testing. It probably took about 10 minutes from takin the dish out of the box to watching TV.

I've read reviews of people taking 30 minutes or an hour to get a signal so I decided to set myself a challenge. I reset my satellite receiver and, using a website, found the heading to a European satellite (19.2 degrees). Again, I pointed the dish in roughly the right direction and was watching German TV within a few minutes. Couldn't be easier.

The only negative is that you need to waterproof the cable connections. The recommended way of doing this is self amalgamating tape. This is not a problem if the connections are permanent, but with this portable dish you probably need to retape the connections every (or almost evert) time you set it up.

Well made piece of equipment . No problem setting it all up and getting the signal. Picked up 549 channels with 30+ radio stations.
No qualms about setting this up at the caravan - looking forward to full range of programmes available. Excellent.........

The initial overview posted with this item is missleading. it clearly states with this satellite kit you can receive all uk TV channels in the uk and Europe. You cant because there is no satellite receiver box included. There were similarly priced ( or cheaper) items advertised alongside this item, which included all you need to receive a satellite signal for your TV, but I chose this one as it was sold by Maplins Electronics. Even when you delve into the technical spec of the item it is not clear that a receiver box is not included.
