I'm struggling to order components. Digi-Key want obscene money for shipping. BOM's in the wiki which seem to be very few wont load to Farnell and they want minimum order, I'm only building one Portsdown not 10.
So where do I go and what do I do

Hi Kevin

As I recall, DigiKey shipping is free once you get over £33. They always seem to work out quickest and cheapest for me.

Agreed, the order becomes a bargain once you hit that order threshold. I bought some extras as their gear is at least quality.

The latest issue of CQ-TV has a number of articles on the equipment and power required to transmit DATV into Es'hail-2. You can sign up for membership here, which would give you access to all the recent articles about transmitting and receiving DATV with the satellite.

The short answer to your question is 30W into a 1.2m dish.
