Rainier Satellite is pleased to announce the Rainier Mighty Mini is Here!
With the sunset of the Pansat AP-600 mover there was a void that needed filling. With the continued growth of the ONLY C band based Subscription Television service available in the U.S. Rainier Satellite must be able to keep up with the demand of hardware needed for its current and future subscribers. Dish movers (controllers) are an integral part of the C band dish system. All sources for good mover products has dried up so Rainier acted fast! With many big name network contracts continuing to be acquired Rainier needs good movers for our full arc system. We sat down a few months back with product designers / manufactures and our experienced technical department to work out the details for the mighty mini product. Rainier is pleased to announce the Mighty Mini’s are now here at Rainier. We’ve taken Delivery. Sales will begin at our Webstore very shortly.
A quick note from the president of Rainier.
“ With the launch of our Variety pak,” says Robert Scharmann, Rainier’s president. “ there’s been an in rush soon of new subscribers to Rainier. Many have dishes that were idle for years that need new hardware upgrades to grab all those new HD signals Rainier has and launching soon. I’m pleased that Rainier has taken delivery of our first shipment of the mighty mini’s quickly to help move these folks systems into the 21st century.”

Sales of the Mighty Mini will begin in our store in the next few days.

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.
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.
