I took delivery of my outer net eq last night
We qualified the patch antenna, amp and dongle
Dongle is very stable
Picked up INMARSAT on the bonnet of my car just on patch
Lots of new signals
I now need to get frequencies and decoders going
Look on my website I have just added photos
Signals - are quite strong
about 45 degree beam
mine is 145 deg
Will report back when i decode
