Satellite Finder Meter. SF500. Identifies satellites.
This meter is ideal for DIY, mobile caravan use or installers. Since it identifies the satellite, set up time is usually under 2 minutes. Please don't mix this meter up with others you may find on the Internet which look similar. These meters are specially built and prepared for the Satellite Superstore and they have our own prescribed dataset installed at the factory. We wanted the meters to be simple to use but also have some useful options. For that reason 3 satellites are provided. Astra 2 at 28E for the English channels from freesat or Sky, Astra 1 at 19E and Hotbird at 13E. If you are in a caravan and touring a long way from the UK, Astra 2 may be difficult to find and may need a dish too large to carry. With this meter you can switch to Astra 1 or Hotbird and still find some useful channels including "BBC World". To put more than 3 satellites into the meter would have made it more complicated and not so quick and easy to use. 3 satellites seemed like the best balance for the budget / quality meter market. Note - other satellites can be added manually using the buttons on the meter if required. (Similar looking meters found on the internet are usually full of Chinese satellites and may not have been pre-prepared. Or if they have, Astra 2 may be mixed up with all of the many Chinese satellites and that can be confusing. The unwanted satellites cannot be deleted.) There are none of those problems with the Primesat meter. Also note, very cheap meters which do not ID the satellites can take much longer to use and whilst they may be OK for a one off installation, they are not recommended for regular use. Note - a battery holder power pack and a mains power supply are also included. It is unusual to find this meter with a mains power supply but this useful addition means that if you have no batteries or they are running low on charge, you can power the meter from the mains. Both of these options are better than trying to run it from a satellite receiver's LNB cable as modern low energy receivers (especially Sky receivers) often do not provide enough current to properly power up larger meters. This is an ideal meter for finding the satellite quickly at an excellent and very competitive price.
Satellite Finder Meter. SF50
Works on all satellites like Sky Digital or freesat at 28E. Works on all other digital satellites. Ideal for setting up a motorised or fixed dish system. Produces a loud audible tone & an visual reading of signal strength. A belt clip / stand is on the back of the meter. An excellent meter & great value for money.
