    we have just had one of these fitted
    MXL003
    SEEKER WIRELESS FULLY AUTOMATIC SATELLITE SYSTEM
    but only as we wanted the 85cm dish as a lot of people say the smaller dish doesnt work as good in south of france....

    did look at the snipe and liked the look and price, but guess the info i got on here made me choose the bigger dish option..sorry i cant give any info on the snipe,,but the system we have seems to work ok (y)

    Hi
    I have a friend who has one of the snipe sats on her caravan and she said it works very well
    she does not have it fitted but puts it on roof when she get to her site.
    it cost her under £600

    Seems little point in satellite on MHs these days as you can get hundreds of channels on digital terrestrial with just a cheap aerial, and you can't get much abroad since the footprints have changed. Save your cash for something useful like a solar panel or beer.

    We are travelling through France and I can never understand the way a van pulls up at a nice aire, the sat dish goes up and tv comes on before anybody gets out to see where they are. We saw one parking the other day and the dish was spinning round before they had finished parking!
    I'm not knocking the TV watchers, just can't understand why people travel to an aire with wonderful views and they have no idea what's outside
    Oops, back on topic. I was talking to someone in Brittany with a Snipe and he said it was very good and picked up loads of channels.
