Can Othernet be considered a SHTF solution?

@Syed, just curious; how much can a VSAT similar to that be found used, does it need to be cooled?
I know it you mentioned before but that is an L-band uplink VSAT?

You don’t need an auto acquire VSAT. A simple fixed dish/system can be had for under $1000 new. The BUC is the most expensive part. At least a couple hundred dollars.

Here is a pretty good installation manual for a relatively low priced BUC series.

It has lots of figures and things to think about for power supply considerations.
