still Working through this thread, sorry if already answered, but yes.Anyone have the dish mounted to their roof? Like... leave it up there while driving? If so, can you post photos? I'm ready to order one... but really want it to stay permanently mounted to the roof...
YesWould it be possible to use a 12v -> 56v step up converter instead of DC->AC Inverter and Starlink power supply? If so, what approach would be more efficient?
12V DC to 56V DC Step Up Converter, Enables PoE on Supported DevicesThis DC to DC 12v to 56v step up converter enables PoE on select Peplink devices that have PoE support. Peplink offers a 56v power adapter however it requires 110v power making it not an ideal solution for mobile use. Step up converted supports up to 168 watts of output power making it ideal for...mobilemusthave.com
I think it means better beam forming. Original dish only has 42 something degrees off nadir.It says "The dish offers better visibility and enhanced GPS capabilities for use with in-motion connectivity."
I wonder if "better visibility" implies better tolerance to obstructions when parked.
What does that get you?I think it means better beam forming. Original dish only has 42 something degrees off nadir.
Beam forming is what allows it to direct it's TX towards the satellite without needing the dish to actually move. I've heard the current ones will work in a flat orientation, but you're only covering about 90 degrees of the sky. If this can beam form to say 60 degrees off normal (120 degrees of sky), that would be a huge improvement and well worth the buy over DIY'ing a current dish.What does that get you?
Where did you find that? Any drawings available?511x575x41mm (w/o the wedge)
Thanks. Looks like that kit comes with a dedicated PSU also so you can ditch their router easily.@sYfte it’s in the Starlink App.

So it's basically the business dish minus the motors. And my guess at the better beam forming is correct.4x the price of the standard dish is a little much, especially for some hardware that will get superceded in probably two or three years (hopefully smaller too!). I'll probably just hardmount the RV kit and deal w/ the lesser speeds.
