You’re hundreds of kays from civilisation in the most idyllic free camp you’ve ever found. The only thing that could make this better would be cracking a cold one and watching some telly. The only problem is – there’s no reception. That’s where the R6 Automatic Satellite Antenna from Travel Vision comes in. Weighing just 9kg and boasting the ability to automatically find the strongest TV signal no matter where in the country you find yourself. The system is fully developed and manufactured in the Netherlands and comes with a one year warranty for peace of mind when you’re out on the road. Now there’s no excuse not to miss the latest news, your favourite football team or even the midday movie!

Thanks to its compact size, the Travel Vision R6 can easily be stored in your van’s tunnel boot or external storage. When you set up camp, all you need to do is open the tripod, connect to your VAST receiver and press the ‘search’ button. That’s it! It doesn’t end there – once the R6 has located and locked on to the Optus C1 satellite, you can remove the LCD control panel and go inside, making the whole system anti-theft and anti-fuss.

Unlike many fixed satellite dishes, the R6 automatically searches for the strongest signal, adjusting its position with small electronic motors until it can set up the best link. Combined with the high quality laminated 80cm dish, it’s been overbuilt to survive Australia’s harsh climate. The R6 finds the Optus C1/D3 satellite, giving it the ability to receive crystal clear reception – even in bad weather!

The Travel Vision R6 Portable Fully Automatic Satellite System retails from $2500. To find your nearest Intellisat dealer call 1300 551 616.
