NOTE TO READERS:  Please note that since preparing this original article.  Some of the items mentioned in the article have changed.  In particular, the  Receiver mentioned has now been upgraded for a newer, more technologically advanced model.  Which means it is much better with more functions, but for the same price.  NAS Have also upgraded the Satellite Finder.  Therefore there may still be some references in the videos that will show the older equipment.  However, rest assured the functionality is still the same of demonstration purposed, but the new equipment will just work better. 

Granted, not all caravanners want or need a TV, but for those on the road full time, the caravan or motorhome should feel like a real home.  It doesn’t matter if you are getting away for a weekend, or a short break, it can still be a perfect time to unwind and watch a favourite sporting event or a TV show.

Finding the right Satellite TV system for you

So, what is the best way to get TV on the road, and what options do you have?
Late last year, we discussed this with two of our FRC ambassadors, Keith & Frances who are on the road full time. And, as we do at Free Range Camping, we decided to research all options and see what was available out there.
We started off by reading all we could about what others have to say, and in the end, our research led us to the NAS system which we have been using since the beginning of the year. We got Keith all the components he needed, and he has been testing it in a variety of locations since then.
Below, Keith takes us through the whole Satellite system, including what is required, how to set it all up and the results.
If you are seriously contemplating getting a Satellite system for your caravan or motorhome, this article is well worth a read.

A word from Keith

Living on the road full time, we are often in places where TV reception is hard to come by, and whilst we love the new experiences we have each day, it is still nice to have a TV to keep up to date with news and events, and also watch our favourite TV Shows.
We had been contemplating a Satellite system for our van since we started our trip, but persisted with standard TV reception for the first few years. I am not really sure if we did get satellite which was the best way to go, but when Rob asked us to research it further we did, and I am happy to say we are pleased with the results.
In the course of my research I have made a few short videos and detailed my findings.

Keith – A happy camper with his new Sat TV

What components are required?

In our view, there are basically three major components to setting up a good, easy to use, satellite system, apart from a TV and accessory cables that is.

1. The Receiver – the device that receives the digital signal so you can watch the broadcast on your TV.
2. The Dish – Including the Tripod and LBN (low-noise block down converter) the receiving device mounted on the satellite dish that collects the radio waves from the dish.
3. The finder – which is a signal meter that is used to help you accurately point satellite dishes to communications satellites.

You can watch the video to get an overview of all the components.

Components in detail


The core of any Satellite TV System is, of course, the Receiver (or Decoder as some refer to it). We used the Altech (UEC DSD4121RV) PVR ready version in the videos below.  The Altech Receivers are designed specifically for the Optus Satellite Platform and not derived from another overseas market models.  These receivers are also designed from the beginning to operate from 12 volts for the RV environment and when used on 240v mains supply utilise an external power supply (included in the box).
We recommend the PVR (Personal Video Recorder) ready version which uses the USB port to connect to a USB stick (up to 128Mb) or an external hard drive for recording when you are unable to watch TV live.  It also serves as a port to play back other compatible recorded material if your TV doesn’t have this function.

Please note:  The DSD 4121 RV model has just been replaced with the DSD 4921 RV Model with many more features.  To find out more about the current model click on the link here:  The New DSD 4921 RV

See the video below to find out more about the Receiver & Satellite Finder


The NEW Altech (UEC DSD4921RV) Satellite Digital Receiver



NAS supply us with a choice of two dishes, either an 80cm or 83cm dish, we chose the 83cm dish, as it is one of the largest dishes available and guarantees maximum signal anywhere in Australia.  The 80cm dish has cut off top and bottom to reduce storage size when travelling.  The manufacturing of these dishes is perfected by using high quality steel with a rolled edge to prevent distortion and finished with a polyester powder coating.  To keep the shipping bulk down, the dish is supplied as a kit with very simple assembly of the mounting bracket required, this is shown in the video below and only has to be done once.

80cm & 83cm Satellite dishes

Included in the dish kit is the arm, which extends to the front of the dish and holds the LNB in place.

To see how the dish is assembled and set up, see the video below

Setting up your Satellite Dish


This is the small grey unit which attaches to the end of the arm and receives and converts the radio waves from the dish.  We have opted for the single model, which allows for only one signal, however there is also the dual model available which allows for Foxtel to be received as well.

Single model LBN


The tripod supplied is one of the best on the market with heavy duty construction and a very simple method of levelling before aligning the dish to the satellite.  It also has a way of allowing rotation without using the u-bolt clamps.  These features are best seen in our setup video.

Tripod with built in bulls-eye level


To set up Satellite TV quickly and efficiently the easiest way is to use a Satellite finder.  Whilst there are many methods available, including using two people to rotate the dish and search, we found the supplied pre-programmed finder simple and easy to use, making set up a breeze.  Whilst smartphone apps can assist you with finding the general directions of where to point your dish,  they will not actually measure signal strength and quality.  A satellite finder actually plugs inline and measures the strength and quality of your signal.  Cheaper alternative signal only meters are available, but often give false reading on strength and do not always measure the quality of the signal.

NOTE:  Our original videos show the Digiteck Satellite Finder being used.  We have now replaced this model with the SatKing SK 3200 Satellite Finder which is a much more advanced model.

To connect everything together, there is a generous 15 meters of co-axial cable included for dish to van and a 1.5 meter fly lead for the tuning process.  All cables are of the highest quality RG6 Quad Shield type with professionally fitted connectors. These cables are made up in house by our supplier and are not cheap Asian imports.


To protect your gear whilst travelling there are two high quality padded carry bags available, with the dish bag also able to store the finder, cables and dish arm.

Carry Bags for Tripod, Dish & Accessories


If you are in need of a TV with your system or thinking of upgrading, the Altech VAST 22” 12 volt LED/LCD TV is the ideal companion for your system.  The TV includes the receiver and tuner, saving on cost and space.

Setting Up a Satellite TV System

Setting up your system and finding a signal is easy, providing that you follow 3 basic alignment procedures, these are outlined in more detail in the attached videos.

Dish Elevation

When setting up your dish, remember that the degree of elevation (angle to the satellite from horizontal) also varies. This is because the satellite is located above Papua New Guinea and the closer to PNG, the higher the elevation angle. This angle can vary from 30 degrees in Western Australia to 70 degrees in Northern Queensland.  View below chart for elevation.

Dish with single LNB and LNB Arm


Elevation Map

The above map also provides a quick reference to the elevation angle required for the Optus C1 satellite. The numbers above refer to the angle in degrees that your dish must be set to.  Remember to always set your dish to around 5 degrees lower than the specified elevation angle and work your way up in 1 degree increments as you pan from left to right.

The tripod supplied with this unit, also comes with a built in levelling device, which makes it easy to find correct levels. More about this in the video.

Tripod with inbuilt level


The LNB needs to be rotated.  This is called LNB SKEW.  Skew angle changes depending on your location.  You have to travel a considerable distance for the LNB SKEW to change.
Below is showing the LNB rotated clockwise around +20 degrees (straight down would be 0 degrees).  There are some areas of Australia that have a negative skew.  This would mean the LNB should be rotated anti clockwise.


Digital Satellite Finder

The satellite finder connects between the dish and receiver and takes its power from the receiver via the co-axial cable.  If you have a need to tune the dish without being connected to the receiver there are AC (Plug Pack) and DC (Battery Box) power options supplied; a cable joiner is also included to eliminate having to swap cables after aligning.  If you have no other means of finding the settings for your location this unit includes a calculator for all three required adjustments (Azimuth, Elevation, and Skew).

NOTE:  Our original videos show the Digiteck Satellite Finder being used.  We have now replaced this model with the SatKing SK 3200 Satellite Finder which is a much more advanced model.

Satking SK 3200 Digital Satellite Finder

Below is a video which shows the Receiver & Satellite finder in more detail.


The Optus C1 satellite is located at 156 degrees East. This doesn’t mean that you point your dish towards 156E on a compass! It means that the satellite is located 156 degrees East of 0 longitude.  For example, I am located in Melbourne at 145 degrees longitude so if I look North (true North) the satellite is 11 degrees to the East of me (156-145=11).  Knowing this info helps you locate the direction to the satellite but don’t take it too seriously.  As long as you know roughly where North is, then you can find a spot for your mount easily.  Remember that the Optus C1 satellite is always East or true North and obviously the number of degrees East will vary depending on your location.  Make sure that you locate your dish in a position that permits light of sight to the satellite with no obstruction such as trees or buildings.

What we thought

After setting up the system and trying it out for a while, Keith was very impressed with the whole kit.  Here are his thoughts on it.

The whole package was easy to set up both the first time and thereafter and the quality of everything supplied is excellent.  Compared with normal digital TV reception in country areas, the reception is much clearer and more stable; there is also no more interference from internal or nearby electronics which many of us have come across since digital TV became “the norm”.  We have not had Sat TV before and it was easy to become familiar with how the whole system works and to set up the dish each time; The dish arrives as a kit to makes it easier to transport for delivery to the customers and was very easy to assemble, a once only requirement.  Everything went together easily and I was very impressed with the tripod supplied for easy levelling especially.  One of our videos specifically deals with setup and alignment of the dish and will help the first timers among you (we hope!).

Happy watching from the road, Keith and Frances Thompson

4 reviews for NAS Complete Sat Pac

  1. Les Tilker

    The kit was received much faster than I thought it would take a consignment of this size. The kit and shipping costs were exceptionally attractive.
    On unpacking the totally complete kit, reading all the accompanying documentation followed by setting up, I soon had a signal to enable registration with Mysat.
    After confirmation of registration I attempted to find the Optus C1 / D3 satellites but hit a brick wall as the satellites were not included on the list of satellites on the SatKing satellite finder.
    I contacted SatKing who smoothly talked me through adding the satellite parameters to the SatKing satellite finder. Now I followed all the instructions to a T and had a strength reading but not a quality reading. Frustration!! I spoke with the person who services my caravan and he had me take the caravan complete with satellite kit to him as he had the expertise to help me out. And he did have the expertise. My experience has taught me to be more bold as to what the instructions say as there are some variables in components affecting alignment to the set up that need to be taken into account. If you are looking for a mounting bracket for the included VAST, contact NAS as they have the matching mounting bracket. I am now a happy camper.

  2. Gazz Camper

    Seems to very easy to set up had no problems finding satellite with finder all materials seem well made and top quality checked other sites before buying this set up but this was best value for the money I found
    Cheers Garry

  3. Ron Denning

    After some initial teething problems with the order, which Rob was fantastic in sorting out, the system is up and going. Very easy to assemble and set up. Finding the satellite was easier than expected with open sky to the north east. Best value for money system we found.

  4. Heather Barr

    We are extremely happy with our Sat TV Pack.
    After assembling the dish and tripod. We found the instructions simple and easy to use.
    Finding the signal was easier than using our attached aerial.
    Just a note: try to not set up near power lines.
    Thanks for the discount as a premium member.
