In a similar query before on this forum it was mentioned that ABS-2 covers Pakistan and that a 90 cm dish and a universal ku LNB will be required to access Outernet. Then, it was told that ku band has been discontinued.
May I know about the present situation? Would it be possible to receive Outernet content in Islamabad? If yes, what Satellite should be pointed to and which hardware may be required.
I have a raspberry pi3 and have downloaded and installed the image also. I expect to receive an rtl-dsr also shortly.
The local guy is telling me that ABS-2 can be received with a 4 feet dish and a universal ku band LNB here. According to him, Hotbird is also accessible but with a 10 feet expensive dish and may receive Outernet signals with a C Band LNB.
I am not conversant well with satellite signal receiving and would be much obliged if someone can extend help.
My interest is in delivering educational content to schools in rural areas. I am already using a solar powered KA-Lite Raspberry Pi server for that. I saw a video on youtube about KA-Litehouse box that can be used for KA content from the Outernet but it does not seem to be available.
Thanks in advance
