b) All cables and junction box for installation
c) The In Door Unit (IDU) which is the user interface box with LCD display and control buttons.
d) Installation instructions
You will need a Satellite Decoder to make this work. Either VAST or Foxtel/Auststar Satellite decoders will operate with this Dish.
In addition to a VAST box, you will need to apply for a decoder card through the appropriate federal government agency (currently Australian Communications and Media Authority). You will need to prove you are a traveller as genuine reason for your application to be granted. Access will not generally be granted if you live in a permanent location, such as Melbourne and wish to watch the Channel 7 broadcasts of the SANFL and WAFL via Satellite.
CaravansPlus can not assist you in your application for a VAST card and permit.
