Description

The Blockstream Satellite Pro Kit is rack-mountable professional satellite receiver that supports all the features of the Basic Kit, with additional dual-satellite capability for more reliable data transfers, and multicasting. Requires a computer running Linux (Ubuntu recommended) to process the received broadcasts.

The Blockstream Satellite Pro Kit requires a number of components to be purchased separately, see below for details.

Included in the Pro Kit:

  • Ku-band LNB
  • C-band LNB
  • CS1 scalar kit
  • Novra S400 satellite receiver
  • F-to-F flat coax cable extender
  • Adjustable LNB mounting bracket
  • Digital satellite finder
  • AC adapter

Purchased separately:

  • Satellite antenna/dish: We recommend purchasing the Selfsat Flat-Panel Antenna, available on the Blockstream Store. However, any TV satellite dish with a minimum diameter of 60cm will work with the kit.
  • A computer running Linux: Most mid-range laptops from the last five years will meet the minimum specifications required to run the Blockstream Satellite software. We recommend Ubuntu for the easiest setup.
  • 1x short RG6 coaxial cable: The cable should be long enough to connect the satellite finder to the satellite antenna during antenna alignment. Normally around one meter will be sufficient.
  • 1x long RG6 coaxial cable: The cable should be long enough to reach from the satellite antenna to the satellite receiver. For example, if you are installing the satellite antenna on a roof and your receiver is held in an indoor office, you will probably need a 10-30m cable to cover the distance.
  • 1x Ethernet cable: The cable should be long enough to reach from the satellite receiver to either your computer or your router.
