The new FLEX portable automatic satellite antenna from King Controls offers an easier way for RV owners to get their favorite TV programs from DIRECTV, DISH and Bell TV, according to a press release.
This new, innovative design combines power, data and satellite communication over a single coaxial cable for simplified set-up, the company said. The FLEX antenna connects directly to the RV’s portable satellite input via coaxial cable with no need for an external power source or cable and also works with a variety of receivers for SD programming from DIRECTV as well as SD and HD programming from DISH and Bell TV.
Dual coaxial outputs provide compatibility with up to two receivers. The compact, lightweight antenna unit measures 17.5 inches by 16 inches and weighs just 10 pounds. A closed loop carry handle provides easy transport and a convenient spot to add a cable and lock for security.
Inside the RV, a small antenna controller with AC to DC power supply simply plugs into the same AC power outlet as the satellite receiver eliminating the need to find a properly fused power source. The antenna controller can be easily attached to the top of the main satellite receiver or mounted inside a cabinet with the provided hardware. According to King Controls, just push a button to automatically lock on the satellite(s) in minutes. The FLEX controller can also be used to program the antenna for the desired satellite service without any special tools or the need to open the dome unit.
Indicator lights on the controller provide complete diagnostic information including verification of proper coaxial connections and satellite signal blockage. The FLEX model VQ2100 portable satellite antenna has a suggested retail price of $649 and is available in the U.S. and Canada through King Controls’ wholesale distribution partners.
