The camping boom is in full swing. More and more people are on the road in their own camper van criss-crossing UK and Europe, sometimes even the globe. When people are on the road in their camper van for a lengthy period of time or they have made their camper their permanent home, the question arises: How can I receive my favourite TV and radio channels in my camper van? The answer: With the SKYRIDER 65!

At the heart of the SKYRIDER 65 is the controller unit, a small box that you place inside your camper van. The unit is connected to the satellite antenna on the roof and, at the other end, the controller is connected to a receiver such as a satellite receiver or television.

With the SKYRIDER 65 version with a single LNB, you can feed satellite signals to a single receiver/television, whereas with the twin LNB version, it is possible to feed two receivers/televisions at the same time or a PVR (recording) set top box which will allow the recording of one channel whilst viewing another. And all fully automatically. When you park up your camper van, satellite reception can be easily activated via the controller unit. The satellite antenna extends at the touch of a button. But only when the vehicle is parked up of course. When you're driving, the antenna remains folded up on the roof, protected against wind and low-lying bridges. By coupling it to the ignition of the camper van, you can be sure that the antenna does not unfold while you're driving. Once the antenna is in the upright position, it will automatically start to align with the position of the desired satellite. Alignment takes three minutes at most - after that you will receive crisp, clear TV and radio channels.

The controller unit is preset to the main popular European satellites allowing you to instantly receive your favourite TV channels. There are 10 pre-programmed satellites for receiving channels from abroad.

Installing the SKYRIDER 65 is easy. The SKYRIDER set contains a 65 cm high quality SATMAN 65 satellite antenna made of powder-coated aluminium, which sits on a motorised mount. The bracket can be mounted directly onto the roof of your camper. To do so, first apply a carrier plate to the roof using an industrial adhesive. The satellite antenna is securely fastened onto this carrier plate together with the bracket. Next the power supply for the motorised antenna is set up using the camper van's ignition and the satellite cable is routed from the LNB of the antenna to the controller unit inside the camper van - and the basic installation of the SKYRIDER 65 is all done.

SATMAN Aluminium Antenna

First-Class Technisat Satellite Dish with a 20-year guarantee The 65cm SATMAN antenna of the SKYRIDER 65 is made entirely of aluminium and is powder-coated on both sides. This not only makes them stable on many roofs, but also on your motorhome, permanently weatherproof and absolutely rustproof. That is why Technisat give you a 20-year guarantee on all metal parts against rusting on the SATMAN satellite dish.


Twin LNB

With twin LNB for two participants The SKYRIDER 65 with twin LNB supplies two receivers or televisions with satellite signals at the same time.


Control Unit

The controller unit is at the heart of the satellite system The controller unit of the SKYRIDER 65 is a small box that you can place in the motorhome. On the one hand, the unit is connected to the satellite antenna on the roof - on the other hand, you also connect your receiver, such as a satellite receiver or television, to the controller unit. In the twin variant, the second receiver is connected directly to the LNB on the roof. The controller unit ensures that you watch TV fully automatically.


Automatic Satellite Selection

Watch TV fully automatically When you switch on your receiver / television, the antenna automatically rises and begins to align itself with the position of the desired satellite. This takes a maximum of three minutes - afterwards you receive TV and radio programs in excellent quality. A total of ten pre-programmed satellites are available for the reception of German and foreign programs.


Automatic Frequency Control

With automatic frequency control If the frequencies of a transponder change at short notice or a transponder ceases to exist, there are still enough transponders available to ensure the perfect alignment of the satellite antenna. And if all transponder frequencies really change, you can send an update to the controller unit via USB.


Safety First

Safety First Satellite reception can only be activated when the motorhome is in the park position and the ignition is switched off. Only then will the satellite antenna stand up at the push of a button. When you drive, the antenna stays on the roof when it is folded, protected from wind and low bridges. By coupling to the caravan ignition, you can be sure that the antenna will not accidentally stand up when you are driving.
UHD Compatible

Ultra-HD Compatible Suitable for receiving the latest Ultra HD / 4K television transmissions as well as standard defintion and high definition HD broadcasts.


HDTV stands for High Definition Television, thus for outstanding picture quality. With HDTV pictures can be displayed in much greater detail and with much finer gradations. Contrast and contours are more precise and colours truer to their originals. Furthermore, the wide screen format on HDTV broadcasts corresponds much better to human visual perception. So it creates a more vivid impression overall.


12V Camping This device can be operated using both normal 110/230V mains and a 12V power supply, e.g. for a vehicle. Hence it is suitable for both home and mobile use.

2 Participant

2 Participant Can supply one receiver / television with satellite TV and readio programmes or one PVR (recording set top box).


Weatherproof Technisat antennas ensure absolute resistance against the elements in order to provide many years of hassle-free uninterrupted viewing.
