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
