    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with a moving satellite internet connection.

    For example:
    On top of an RV while it's going down the road
    A boat under sail

    If so, has it worked for you?
  2. My understanding from DirecWay is that it cannot be used on a moving object. This has to do with the directional azimuth.

    There is a thread that we had going about a week ago. Think that a couple of posters suggested a system by a company KVH. Sounded like a good option, but maybe rather costly. Be great if we could find a good affordable source. Name of the thread was something like "Mobile satellite/trading hookup" or something quite similar to this one. Hope that helps.

    P.s. would like to discuss remote trading with you at your convenience. Thanks gordo.

    Guy on TV had a dish on his bus/motorhome that automatically oriented itself while the bus was on the road so he could watch tv while he was travelling (he had a driver), so they are available. Probably spensive though.
  5. as far as I'm aware, TV yes; two-way internet, no. (not while moving)
  6. Currently correct; however give it a few months ...

    So it is probably possible to trade from an RV while it is parked?You just need to know where to point the disc?How would you do it.With a compass and a sextant?
  8. Probably uses GPS somehow. I think Popular Mechanics had an article about this within the past year. Interesting read. I briefly looked, but couldn't find that article. A search for "satellite internet rv" on Google turns up a lot of info.
