They look like a good bit of kit, I think I will get one of the kits.

That combined with a SDR based transmitter with the appropriate filtering etc would be a very versatile station.

I have a log periodic PCB antenna on the way so I'll try and pick up the local TV Repeater with that, then when I have confidence with that I'll look at the dishes a bit more seriously.

It's all fun

There's two options for the hardware to run with the Minitioune. You can either buy parts from the BATC store and make it up yourself or do what I did and get the Minitiouner-express which is fully assembled and ready to go. You can order the Minitiouner-express from the USA at but gets shipped from the UK. I got mine the day after ordering.
