Avtex Snipe Product Overview
The Snipe Satellite Antenna is new for 2013 from Avtex. The Avtex Snipe antenna is a simple, easy to use portable satellite TV system. Like all Avtex products this Mobile Satellite antenna is purpose built and designed for your Caravan or Motorhome, does not require the use of a power invertor and can be ran directly on 12v power source.
The Selfsat Snipe is a small and very discreet fully auto locking Satellite TV antenna. Specifically designed for outdoor use to give you the best possible performance.
The Snipe gives you excellent coverage due to the state-of-the-art element design which is equivalent to a 65cm Dish. Further to this with the built in GPS it is able to detect your location and auto skew the element to give you the best possible gain for your position.
The easy to use remote control allows you to see all the satellite parameters to ensure optimum performance.

SNIPE Autiomatic Satellite System review by Mr McInnes on 25/03/2013
On trying out the device at home it took me longer to connect the cables than it did to have the system search and find the satellite on Friday evening.
Whole system works a treat, bit like something out of a science fiction movie.
What a great piece of kit but if there has to be a single complaint it’s that there is no special security fixing on the device.
I’ve got around the security issue with a long loop padlock and some security cable fixed though one of the securing bolt holes on the base but that requires me to have removed before putting the device back in the home position or else there could be damage.
On a Site Weekend 22nd March 2013.
Used the device for the 1st time onsite and BRILLIANT!
Took me less than 5mins to be all setup and the device secured to the van.
I had the device on a caravan step and even in winds of excess 37MPH it was stable.
Very good. review by Mr Jackson on 22/03/2013
I bought the product five months ago for use with my Motorhome and I have used it only twice.
Although I have used it much, it has been very easy to use, always quick to set-up and find signal. Would definitely recommend this product and YELTSA to anyone.

If it doesnt come with the baseplate,how much does this cost ?
Posted byon Tuesday, 3 June 2014Hi, The baseplate can only be supplied when purchased and installed by an Avtex dealer that offers an installation service.
Is there a facility for a twin LNB, so that you can record whilst watching.
Posted byon Saturday, 8 March 2014Hi, Thanks for your inquiry regarding the Selfsat Snipe. They do produce a twin LNB but this isn't an item which we can source unfortunately.
