Satellite internet instalation in Gjirokastër,Albania
Yesterday i had the opportunity to travel in Gjirokaster (or Argyrokastro in Greek) Albania for the installation of a satellite system providing broadband connection 1Mbps via HELLASSAT 2 at 39deg east.
It is not possible to have a broadband connection through a local provider in Gjirokaster so this solution was the only way.
The system receives and also transmits through the LNB with a maximum power 0,5w on 12ghz
Two cables are ending in the modem and through an ethernet port you can connect your pc to the internet.
I think that this could be a nice idea for some dx peditions in places that there is no local broadband connection.
