The Facts on New Satellite Technology for RVs

By: David Johnson

?Somewhere along the way someone decided to fit a satellite TV system in their RV and the rest is history, because now more and more people are doing it.It didn't start out that way, because in the beginning people would use a standard TV with bunny-ear antennae and hope to have reception in the places where they stopped but that all changed with the advent of satellite TV. The first pioneer of the RV satellite TV system was a man named Bob Stacy who had the idea to invent a small satellite dish that had a motor on it that he could use to adjust its reception with. It turned out that it worked so well that he started a company to manufacture and market them that he named Motosat and it did quite well. The idea took wind and more and more people began to install the motorized satellite dishes, so they could enjoy satellite TV when they were on the road.

There were still some short sides to this system, such as the fact that the dish had to be taken down and set back up every time the RV hit the road, so it wouldn't be blown off of the roof of the RV. The other problem that RV owners faced was the fact that the satellite TV system couldn't pick up signals while the RV was traveling down the open highway. People could get around this problem by pre-recording programming on a receiver that DVR capabilities and then playing the programming back when they were traveling but that still left them with substantial limitations. For one thing, travelers couldn't access the weather channel to check out the road conditions that they were approaching as they traveled and this was a real problem for RV driversArticle Search, because their size makes them more vulnerable to precarious weather such as high winds. Recently however; one satellite service provider has come up with a solution to this problem by developing a satellite antennae that will receive satellite transmissions on the road and they call it Mobile Dish.Its a service provided by Dish Network and it currently has one-hundred channels in their viewing repertoire. Now with this state of the art satellite system travelers can truly take their home with them when they travel. One problem when traveling down the open road is that the sight-seeing isn't always optimal and if there are bored children in the vehicle it can make the trip a little rough. Having one-hundred channels to surf through during the times when sight seeing isn't enough to keep passengers occupied now means that traveling with kids on board is no problem.
