Othernet operates two satellite spots, one for Europe and one for the USA, in order to send data to a special receiver via the Ku band (normal satellite TV range). The receiver, known as "Dreamcatcher", continuously saves the data it has received via satellite in the background. This data is made available to users via a WiFi hotspot. Users can access various information such as weather, news, podcasts, audio books and other multimedia content via the recipient's web server.
To receive the geostationary satellites Astra 3B at 23.5 ° East (Europe) and SES-2 at 87 ° West in the (USA), the bare LNB should be sufficient in the best case! The signal sent is extremely robust. A small satellite dish increases the reliability.
