I do understand that, the communication seems to be not good at all.
They are quite busy in my experience so that will be one of the reasons, still there has to be more Communication on indigogo.
But they did make a lot of Progress, a short rundown:
-> KU Band with Dish, TV Protocoll (DVB)
-> L-Band with a small Antenna, LNA, SDR and SBC (C.H.I.P)
-> L-Band with integrated LNA and own sdr / SBC hardware (Dreamcatcher)
-> KU Band with LoRa Protocol and new Dreamcatcher Hardware, only LNB Needed,no Dish, no Antenna. Current Solution (Will stay i think)
I had everything after the KU-Band with Dish Product and it works really well. The current LNB Only system with the LoRa Protocol is really awesome and works well. I can even receive it Indoors here trough my Window with the little LNB sitting inside.Currently the two rented Satellites cover the EU and North America.
Othernet also developed a new LNB that is even more stable, but even my Cheap standard TV LNB works well. I think hardware wise Othernet is almost ready with the Receiver, only Problem seems to be to find a producer for a decent Case.
I really hope Othernet will get the Lantern out finally, they have worked a lot in the past years and it would be sad to not have a resulting integrated device.
