    I am thinking of buying a Snipe Sat receiver and before buying, I know some members have bought one, so thought I would ask the question.

    Have you had it long? Are you happy with it?

    Thank you for any help on this.:)

    Hi Billy23,

    Yes, we have a Snipe, had it in use for the last year and very pleased with it. I understand the later models have an improved gear system.

    As I understand it, if you have it installed by the supplier, they will remove it and take it back for repair, should it be needed. It comes in/with a substantial carry case.

    If you purchase and install yourself, you are responsible for removing it and returning it to supplier for repair.

    So far we have't had to remove it.

    The automatic tuning is a treat, had to shift up the pitch at one site to find the sat. but that's no problem.

    Another point, once tuned in you can switch off the tuner, not even taking standby supply.

    We would recommend them.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1
