Satellite Reception East Coast Australia


I live close to Brisbane Australia and was wondering if there are any Australian Users, or anyone for that matter than could give me feedback as to the feasibility of using Othernet from my location.

I understand a SNR of 3+ is required. What kind of SNR are Australian Users reaching. I understand there are variable that can interfere with signal, but in general, is it safe to say that Othernet can be accessed from the east coast of Australia?

Thank you for your feed back.


Sorry I did not Read the FAQ. Sadly it would appear this technology does not work across the globe as I thought the case would be. :frowning:

Perhaps I should research Short Wave Radio Data via SSB and have fun with that.

I hope Australia is soon able to be included in this fascinating service you guys are still able to provide.

Best of luck.


Well there are plans to cover the whole world. Current working Beam is America and Europe is in testing.

I don’t know when the get a Asia/Ocean Beam that Covers Australia, but with three Sats it should cover the whole world.


Yes, I read there are 3 Sats, however no one can confirm coverage in Australia. Look forward to the day Australians are also included.

Thx for the reply.
