Compatible Satellite Capability

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine


The new FLEX portable automatic satellite antenna from King Controls offers an easy way for motorhome owners to get their favorite TV programs from DIRECTV, DISH and Bell TV. The FLEX antenna connects directly to the coach’s portable satellite input via coaxial cable with no need for an external power source. It’s designed to work with a variety of receivers for SD programming from DIRECTV as well as SD and HD programming from DISH and Bell TV. Dual coaxial outputs provide hook up for up to two receivers. The compact, lightweight antenna unit measures 17.5-by-16 inches and weighs 10 pounds.
Inside the motorhome, a small antenna controller with an AC to DC power supply eliminates the need to find a properly fused power source. The antenna controller can be attached to the top of the main satellite receiver or mounted inside a cabinet with the provided hardware. Indicator lights on the controller provide complete diagnostic information including verification of proper coaxial connections and satellite signal blockage. The FLEX model VQ2100 portable satellite antenna has an MSRP of $649.
