Dish Reflectors

Now you can get replacement reflectors for your Winegard DS-2076, DS-2077 and DS-2078 dishes.

Normally only the reflector gets damaged, so why buy a whole new dish?  Now you can get the reflector only and easily replace it.  Many times you don't even need to realign the dish.  These are direct replacements from Winegard the manufacture.

High Definition and Stability

Avenger PLL321S-2
High Definition channels pack a whole lot more information in the same space.  Receiving it from satellite requires much higher stability from your LNBF.  MPEG4 complicates things even more.  Missing channels, tiling, blocking and drop out are most likely caused by your LNBF.  So, how do you fix this problem without spending $300 or more?

DMS International has come to your rescue.  Swap out that old LNBF for our Avenger PLL321S-2 LNBF that gives you at least 5 times better stability and in some cases well over 10 times improved stability.  Our high stability PLL LNBF will give you rock solid performance even on those low cost receivers.  You will  be pleasantly surprised at the cost.

There is no reason to suffer with low quality and poor stability.  Now you can enjoy all the benefits of high stability for about the same price you are paying for the common LNBFs.  Performance is the name of the game and our PLL LNBF will out perform LNBFs costing 10 times more.  Bring your MPEG4 receiver to it's full potential by using our high stability PLL LNBF.

Available now at your favorite DMS International reseller.

Avenger PLL321S-2 Released


On December 6th we released our latest product the Avenger PLL321S-2, our new PLL LNBF with 300KHz  or better stability.  The good DRO LNBFs made today are 1.5MHz (1500KHz) stability making our new PLL LNBF at least 5 times more stable.  Lots of low end DRO LNBFs are 3MHz (3000KHz) or worse stability.

While high stability LNBs aren't exactly new, what stands out here is two things, 1) we made it in a LNBF, and 2) the price is comparable to DRO LNBFs currently on the market.  This means, for about the same price you can have a high stability LNBF on your system.

So why is stability so important?  The higher the compression, the more critical stability becomes.  This became very evident when MPEG4 channels started to appear.  Now we have MPEG4 HD channels that really pack a lot of information in a very small space.  You need higher stability LNBFs to insure that you can receive all the channels.  If you are missing some channels now, it may not be your receiver, instead take a look at your LNBF.  Swapping it out for our new PLL LNBF most likely will overcome this problem.  Better stability will also improve weak signal and rain fade problems.  You will find channels that were too weak for your system before, and when your system is effected by adverse weather conditions, you will find your signal will not deteriorate as fast as it did with your old LNBF.

The new Avenger PLL321S-2 is a must for feed hunters and hobbyists alike.  The price makes it very acceptable for any installation and today's high compression digital world demands high stability.

The new Avenger PLL321S-2 is in stock and ready to ship.

Satellite / Transponder list updated


Today I updated the satellite/transponder list.  This list includes all the known satellites and transponders around the world.  I provide 2 of these lists to registered owners of First Strike Meters and Sathero Meters.  Each list is formatted for the specific meter you have.  I provide this service free of charge to registered owners of our meters.  You simply need to provide your registered meter information and request the list.  These lists are extensive which makes them long.  Usually they are about 140 pages and come as a PDF file. 

When you register your meter it is critical that you provide the serial number and registration code correctly.  Each meter is checked against our production list and verified that it is actually ours.  On First Strike Meters we check the serial number and Sathero Meters we check the registration code found on the inside of the battery door.  We fully support meters that came from us however we are not able to support meters that did not come from us. 

Register your First Strike Meter here ~ Register your Sathero Meter here

You can also Join our email lists here.  We don't send to the email list very often so we won't flood your emails in box.  It is mostly for big announcements, software changes, etc.  If you own any of our meters you should sign up for the appropriate email list.  If you want to keep up with the day to day stuff, see our blogs.  First Strike Meters Blog ~ Sathero Meters Blog ~ Trimax Meters Blog ~ DMS International Blog

JSC321S and JSC322

Very large shipment of JSC321S single and JSC322 twin just arrived.  As most of you know, Japan components have been in short supply.  We have been lucky to receive several shipments since the shortage started.  The supply chain has been weakened but not broken.  Many LNBF factories are forced to use the Chinese components.  While some Chinese components have improved, they are still not as good as the Japan components.

Our latest news letter goes out.

News
Well, since the last news letter we've sold a ton of FS1 meters and it didn't take long to sell out of the SM-2500 meters.  I thought it would take much longer.  So, thanks to everyone who placed a order with us.  That is what keeps us going strong!!!

K to L Series Upgrade
We have had a surprising number of K to L FS1 upgrades.  A few people have ask me if we plan to upgrade the FS1 again.  The short answer is NO, we do not have any new hardware upgrades in the works for the FS1.  There may be software upgrades but those will be free of charge and posted to our website.

FS2 meter announced
I also announced the FS2 meter recently.  Soon we will do the final approvals and soon you will be able to buy this meter.  I am really excited about this one.  The engineers have made a completely new platform.  You will be seeing a lot more of this new platform in coming meters.  We will have at least 2 models of the FS2, the FS2-DVBS and the FS2-DVBS2.  Watch our website for details.

Support Ticket System
Last week we adopted a new system that allows you to submit a support ticket online.  You can then go back and check on the progress of your ticket at any time.  With our quickly increasing sales I felt we needed more customer support. 

Live Chat
Along with the Support Ticket System I have started a Live Chat service.  When you see this logo you can click on it to chat with us or leave a message when we are not available to chat.
