1. minimum system requirement

These are the Minimum System Requirements to use AFRI-SAT Broadband Internet by NSS-10:

  • 1.8m dish (at minimum)
  • 2W BUC minimum (5W more desired) model NJT5667F or NJT5669F (also NJT5656 old and heavy unit could work). However, almost any BUC will work on our system as long as LO (local oscilator ) is 4900MHz
  • LNB (3.6 to 4.2 GHz)
  • LinkStar DVB-S2 modem and set of cables

Actually Linkstar S2 modems (and any later version) are the only ones supported by C-band platform. Previous models are not supported.

2. Antenna Pointing

Point Your Antenna to NSS 10 at 37.5 W using horizontal receive on your Spectrum Analyzer.

Please Note SATLOOK Digital Analyzer will display XICOM - NSS 10 when decoding our signal.

3. Configuring modem

You need to telnet into the RCST with a cross over cable using the default IP address, and enter the following commands exactly as you see them:


save -f 1066675
save -s 10000000
save -c 0x1029
save -pcr 0x365
save -pop 0x011e0005
save -o 1
save -t -30

save -dvb 1


After you enter the command "hw", the modem will reboot, and once it comes back on line, the sat "LED" should start blinking (providing you are locked on NSS-10).
