    We have the Oyster self seeking dish, friends new to Motorhoming are buying the Dome. We have no experience of this so any advice would be welcome. If anyone has used both the pros and cons of each would be helpful.

    Theirs will work in high winds and can be used when there is thunder and lightening around. Yours can't

    Yours will work a bit further North South East and West! on Astra 2

    That is in essence the difference

    Simple!

    We have used both types and found no difference in the reception. The advantages of a dome are that it is easier to clean and can be used in all weather conditions. The only possible disadvantage being the slight increase in height when not in use.

    Truthfully "in motion" is pretty crap unless your on a long straight motorway.

    There is loads of things happening in the dome world, we did a "taster" last month with a 40cm static installed for only £1000!

    We have a combination dish / dome system (best of both worlds?) that we expect to retail at under £1000 available from March!

    The customer is king :Smile:

    Was at Roadpro today and was lucky enough to have a sneak preview of the new range of Camos domes being launched at the N.E.C show next month. Must say I was impressed with them , firstly they have a slightly different design dome cover which is (I,m told) more impact resistant than the current models. All new new redisigned internal workings, making it possible to recieve signals in the far north of Scotland and Scandanavia that currently is not possible . There is a brand new L.C.D control box now capable of finding 10 different satellites.
    There will also be Auto Skew models with adjustment via GPS.

    Prices to remain same as current models


    Personally I would be far more interested in a system that received signals in the far south of Spain
