Excellent!

A warm welcome to the Forum and thanks for sharing those pics.

We certainly don't have many Members from Sri Lanka, as far as I can recall. So Welcome once more!

Hello - welcome!


Great stuff - thank you for sharing those pictures - its very strange to us in western Europe to see the dishes pointing so high in the sky :)

What satellite(s) do you have access to?

Dear All satellite friends,I am changing dish position time to time. .But mostly 5.5tf dish pointing to two satellite ( Asiasat 3S 105.5E & Asiasat 5 100.5E for c band ). 100cm offset dish pointing to the Insat 4B 93.5E for KU band,
65cm offset dish for Intelsat 12, 45.0E for KU band & 6ft black dish using for Thaicom 78.5E for C band.I have another one more solid dish for testing, Very Happy new year for all of my satellite friends in this forum...!!! :-thumb1 :-thumb1 :-thumb1

Great stuff, over here in Finland the dishes appear to be almost pointing down at the ground...

just as well - during the winter they'd just collect snow too easily otherwise :)

I notice from one of the pictures that the Openbox has a UK plug attached. Can that be used natively in Sri Lanka or do you need an adapter?

Yes, very true, if you can find a gap in the trees that is!

I noticed that too. According to electricaloutlet.org/type-d Sri Lanka uses the old British style.

I thing your country located above the equator & far from the equator ,Therefor your country sat dishes pointing down at the ground..!!!

In our country some time we are using electrical outlet British style,When we use other outlet we use adapter.( Up to 1948 our country control by the British Still we are using British culture,now a days also can see British bulding in our country )

That well illustrates the issue you low-latitude types have with keeping the LNB connections watertight!

I'm yet to find a more painful plug to step on with bare feet :) It also takes up a lot of space :( I like the Swiss - compact, solid and stable.
