TRAVELSAT PORTABLE, MOBILE SATELLITE TV DISH SYSTEM FOR YOUR CARAVAN
Whether you're a seasoned traveler or have just bought a new van, you may be aware of the difficulties in receiving adequate digital TV reception using a traditional antenna. A satellite system offers perfect digital reception all over Australia. What separates one system from another? On this page, we'll look at each individual component so you can see how comprehensive our systems are.

We're a bricks and mortar business offering outstanding customer service. If you buy a system from us, you buy us and whether you need us now or three years down the track, we can help. There's never an issue that we can't solve in 10 minutes over the phone so that's reassuring.
THE TRAVELSAT SYSTEM - PROVEN OVER TIME
The TravelSat SP75 dish reflector will provide you with Australia wide coverage and is a great balance of size versus performance when using it in a caravan. We've been distributing the SP75 dish now for eight years and it's a proven performer with good features. An engraved LNB showing skew marks is included.
The reflector is elliptical and it measures 75cm across x 83cm top to bottom.
It has a rolled edge for extra strength and is zinc coated then painted.
The rear bracket is a winning design that is easily adjusted for different elevations around Australia. We fit all bolts with wingnuts so no tools are required.
The elevation assembly has 5 degree increments stamped on the side so you can adjust the elevation according to the charts we supply.
The main LNB support arm is removable for easy storage by loosening off the knob on the back.
A padded bag is included to suit this dish. The bag features 4 internal pockets inside to store your bits and pieces.
The SP75 dish in the TravelSat kit is mounted on the included tripod.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
SINGLE OUTPUT LNB
The included single output LNB (amplifier on the front of the dish) is compatible with VAST, Austar and Foxtel and has a single cable wired from the dish. This is suitable for all VAST and standard pay TV boxes (excluding MyStar and Foxtel IQ which require a twin output LNB).
Altech UEC 4921 Twin Tuner VAST Satellite TV Receiver
The Altech 4921 VAST Decoder is undoubtedly the best decoder for use in a caravan and motorhome. Its small size and low power consumption as well as 12V and 240V operation coupled with features like, dual tuner for PVR recording (recording direct to an external USB drive), easy to use on-screen menus, IR sensor port (so you can hide the decoder away in a cupboard and have the sensor outside the cupboard), HDMI output and more.
You'll get access to the complete range of free to air Australian TV channels almost anywhere in Australia.
SATELLITE METER - SatKing 3200 Handheld Meter
The SatKing SK-3200 is digital satellite Finder specially designed for VAST satellite TV. Being MPEG 4 the unit has been pre-programmed with the VAST paraFinders pre-set making the Finder very easy to use. If the other Finders you find just say digital they are not MPEG4 so they will not last. Simply plug the unit in to the dish and use the signal level bars to align you dish and once the level bars go green and the signal beeper is sounding the dish is aligned correctly and you are on the correct satellite. Then plug the antenna cable into your vast receiver or Foxtel STB and it will scan the channels in for you. The unit has a built in high power battery so the unit does not need to be connected to the VAST receiver to be used. Unlike many other lower priced Finders on the market this Finder you can actually receive VAST transponders. Many other mid lower cost Finders you are actually just receive the signal from the MPEG2 format and this could end anytime rendering your Finder useless. Special Note: All VAST services are MPEG4, there are no VAST MPEG2 services. If you have Foxtel and think this Finder sounds perfect for you well it is, you can simply align your dish on the VAST settings or simply select TP 3 in the sat setting menu and the unit will receive the actual Foxtel signal.
- a short cable for the dish to connect to the meter
- a 10m cable from the dish to the caravan wall
- internal 1m cable from the inside wall to the decoder.
You'll need a way to connect that external coaxial cable in through your van wall. We n supply our EziPlate weatherproof wall fitting that is easy and neat to install. The EziPlate can adjust to wall thicknesses up to 35mm and is a direct, no loss connection from outside to in.
You may already have something similar but unless it is a direct connection from outside to in with no joins or splitter in between then it will not work.
A basic compass can be supplied with our system - choose from the options. You don't need to be a scout’s captain to align a dish. The compass is used as a reference to North. When you read through our instruction manual, you'll notice that the direction charts relate to North.
DSD4921 Accessories Pack
The DSD 4921 accessories pack inculdes a 12 volt power lead to power your decoder, a 1m RCA lead, and a IR extender lead.
