Except the Channel Master dish and NPM all other equipment was configured, tested and shipped direct from London (hand luggage).

A local company was supposed to provide the 180 cm dish but they let us down (sorry, no dish in stock), we had to fly from Maputo to Johannesburg to get one and then shipped it by road via Maputo to final location (4 day’s).

We had a Bgan satellite phone to contact the hub for CP test and in case we needed additional technical backup from London and a Satlook Spectrum Analyzer to align the dish.
