The 27th August marked the 30th anniversary of the first Australian satellite launch, A1. In 1981, the Australian Government formed AUSSAT, a company which was created to own and operate Australia’s National Satellite System. Soon after in 1985, Australia’s first two satellites launched – A1 in August and A2 in November. This was the commencement of domestic satellite services in Australia, particularly for remote and rural TV broadcasting.

SatKing VAST Receiver Australia's Most Popular

// posted by Admin on Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Apr 28

The SatKing DVBS2-800CA is now Australia's most popular VAST receiver. At times this year this unit has actually out sold all other VAST receivers on the market combined. Feedback from customers as to why it is the most popular VAST satellite receiver is due to it's compact size and ease of use. Other units claim to be designed in Australia but there is no mistaking the SatKings Australian roots. Some give aways of the Australian design:

  • The SatKings user friendly and bright colourful OSD
  • Large button remote with learning features and main buttons that can be seen in the dark
  • Compact Size
  • Reliability with Australian power and heat, feedback from Dealers Australia wide that it is clearly the most reliable
  • Suits home, caravan RV and commercial use. No other VAST receiver can genuinely lay claim to this.
