Satellite systems from Intercaravaning.shop, such as the Cytrac DX Premium satellite system or the Oyster Premium, generally consist of a satellite antenna for the roof, including LNB, an LED television with remote control and the required assembly material. The Kathrein flat antenna BAS 65 Skew, on the other hand, is designed for stationary use. That is why the selection of satellite systems for mobile use at Intercaravaning.shop is larger, since not only the mirror sizes vary. Satellite antennae like the Oyster Vision and Megasat Caravanman camping satellite systems are parabolic antennae; the Cytrac DX and the Caro Premium and Caro Vision satellite systems have somewhat more compact flat antennae in the package that are also easier to install. However, pros maintain that parabolic antennae produce better images and have better reception than flat antennae. By the way, the Oyster DX Vision and Cytrac DX Vision satellite systems differ from the premium models of the manufacturer only in that they do not include a television.
The antennae from the Oyster Vision series use integrated GPS to fully automatically home in on the best reception depending on the transmitter selected. This function is available as an option for the “Megasat Professional GPS” model of the Megasat Caravanman satellite system. As an alternative, you can purchase a satellite finder from Intercaravaning.shop. Devices like the satellite finder Schwaiger SF 70 are simply installed between the receiver and LNB or satellite antenna and assist you during precise adjustment by issuing visual and acoustic signals. In terms of its dimensions, the Oyster Vision, which has a mirror size of 85 cm, is only 17 cm high; the equivalent variant of the Megasat Caravanman satellite system series is 19 cm high. In terms of space requirements, an Oyster Cytrac DX satellite system with a Vision flat antenna is even better suited for use on caravans and motor homes since the motor-controlled exterior unit is only L 78 x W 56 x H 14 cm in size. The Caro satellite systems from the same manufacturer have almost identical dimensions (L 78 x W 54 x H 14 cm). They are constructed to be especially weather and hail resistant for winter and mountain enthusiasts.
With the Megasat Caravanman Kompakt, the Megasat Camping satellite system series features the smallest model, with a mirror measuring only 46 × 32 mm and an overall outdoor installation size of L 48 × W 46 × H 16 cm. According to the manufacturer, the antenna can still find the satellite signal, even on the edges of Europe – however, it does not have an automatic GPS function. You have to use the search run. The Megasat Campingman satellite system guarantees maximum mobility. It is not a permanently installed satellite system but rather a portable model. That means you can always position the Megasat Campingman where no trees or buildings are blocking your reception. At the touch of a button, the receiver, which measures only 67 × 40 cm, finds the selected satellites within two minutes. In contrast to the permanently installed Megasat Caravanman designs, however, this device requires a receiver in the vehicle. If you want to move on, all you have to do is put the protective hood on the Megasat Campingman and pack it in your vehicle.
