I have a spare Foxtel dish so if I take the decoder box and set it up when camping will it work? I suppose I could just take it out in the yard and try it but this way is easier.

Hi Peter
You can, but you are not supposed too ! Just don't tell Foxtel.
Regards
Neil

Yup- you could fasten the dish to the tent pole..and you could take
The microwave oven
Electric Blanket
The missus's hairdryer
The computer with internet connection
The 'granny' chair to watch foxtel
The four poster bed
Playstation for the kids
and the DVD player..

Just thought of a good way to save on weight. Don't take the kids & you wont need the Playstation.

Signman,
I don't believe that you forgot the whoopy cushion again.

Go the mighty Troop carriers

Smart answer Singman NOT ? he only asked a simply question and you carry on like that i see you have a troopy to carry all your toys. If you go so basic why not just ride a bike. Cheers Tony

yep - easily done but you'll need a sat dish - I put mine into the spare jockey wheel bracket that I had welded on the opposite side of the a-frame.

I don't use it a lot as it does use a fair bit of power but it's handy for marine forecasts and... well, other stuff.

Yes - so long as the LNB's have the same LO freq and that you can accurately tune the dish. You can get little signal strength meters that will help with this.
Cheers
