New information added to our First Strike website


From time to time we get requests for information that is hard to acquire.  We do our best to help the owners of our meters by providing as much information as possible.  Today I have posted some information that has been requested.

This information includes:

  • list of Afghanistan satellites
  • installers training document for Shaw Directs new XKU LNBFs
  • complete list of UHF/VHF television frequencies.  
  • and more...
You can find the information here.  Registered meter owners can request access here.

Just another way we thank the meters owners for buying and using our meters.

If you have information that would be beneficial to your fellow meters owners, send it to us and we will post it and give you credit for providing the information.
