In Search of the Best Stand Alone Satellite Dish Mover.

Rainier Satellite is proud to announce we are now a dealer for and selling the Best Quality solid well built, bug free mover made today, the Pansat AP 600.

AP 600

We have tested them all, from the low cost V box 7, V box II, and all the off names of the V box family.  To the high cost Titanium ASC-1, They all fell short of the quality and robustness we were looking for.

The V Box family had issues, it failed in cold climates,  under continuous use, or moving  8 foot larger, or heavier dishes. We could not settle or justify selling a product to our customers with these multiple issues.

We also tested the Titanium ASC-1 but were quickly disappointed  by its problems. Most noted its runaway motor control, (it quickly runs your dish to the end of its travel by itself when an incorrect key is pushed, or senses something incorrectly) This is dangerous, and can ruin dishes (dish flip) and actuators (bent arms).   Other bugs and problems cropped up too, too many to mention here.  Once again, we  were just not satisfied with it nor could endorse,  or sell a product like this to our customers.

We needed something that was guaranteed to work well under all conditions and not buggy for our customers. We took the same into consideration when finding a receiver for our services.  It must work and work well, this is our goal. Rainier Satellite prides itself on selling only quality fully tested products.

So what was Left?

We needed a product that would  work as well as the 4DTV or other  quality built C band satellite receivers tracker did, bug free. Well the AP 600 actually does just that. It performs flawless, and is bug free. We are very happy with its solid robust performance.

If you look under the AP 600’s hood its build on the old school  electronic design just like the old satellite receivers which worked so well.

Its a breath of fresh air to see something built with the old school  design quality (AP-600) and integrity that served C band so well for many years.

Everything today seems to be based on low cost cheap robotic sub-mini design. (ASC-1 example below)

Or uses cheap underrated parts like the V Box family. Inside the V-Box models you can see the cheaply made poor design with its under rated transformer.
