Intellian d4 HD Satellite System, $1500, located in St Petersburg, FL

18” antenna dish in 20”d x 21”h dome, receives both Ku (Dish) & Ka (DirecTV) bands in HD. Covers 48 states, lower Canada and much of Bahamas. 6 years old. Includes dish, Intellian Antenna Control Unit, DirecTV HR24 HD DVR Satellite Receiver, Installation and User Manual.

A new 18” Ku-only Intellian i4 is $4K. Cheapest dual band system is Intellian s6HD (24”) $8K. A new, empty dish dome just to look cool is $400. Unit was professionally installed at PO’s great expense on my new-to-me boat. You can uninstall it (mast lowers, easy) or I can and ship it.

PM me for more details. Thx!

I am told that if you have Dish or DirecTV at your dirt home, then this additional satellite receiver is a $5 or $10 per month additional charge on that account.

Perhaps, but without an RV account (Dish TV) the subscriber will not be able to get local stations outside of the footprint of their home station. For me, that is why I think Dish is the better choice for boaters on the move. Change in market? Use the myDish app to immediately change to the new location.

I am just south of Fort Lauderdale on the east coast of Florida. the only thing that's keeping me from saying yes is the drive from here to your place. Any idea how much it would take to ship?

I have a good UPS Store a couple blocks from my Marina and they have shipped odd sized stuff for me before with good results. My WAG, $100 for pro boxing and freight.

Download the I4 manual from Intellian. It's all there.

Thanks for the interest!

First, my unit is a "d4", not an "i4". I believe this is is a BIG difference as the d4 is High Definition HD for both Ku (Dish) & Ka (DirecTV).
i4 is Ku band only.
A new i4 is about $3600. My d4 was over $7K when new, and the cheapest dual band system now is Intellian s6HD (24”) for $8K.

For wiring:

My d4 satellite dish is connected to the Intellian Antenna Control Unit with 3 coax cables: satellite signal #1, satellite signal #2 and power. Power is transmitted from the Antenna Control Unit to the satellite dish via the 3rd coax cable. All 3 coax cables can be seen in the first picture, entering together in the bottom of the dish.

The Antenna Control Unit is connected to one or more Dish or DirecTV Satellite Receivers - depends on how many TVs you want to hook up. My system includes my DirecTV HR24 HD DVR Satellite Receiver. I will also include the cables between ACU and DirecTV Satellite Receiver and a compatible splitter to connect multiple TVs. The previous owner had 3 TVs on board connected in this manner.

I will be on the boat for the next 2 weeks and am motivated to sell during this period. Further questions are welcome!

Trade for Simrad radar; includes mast mount base

The $1200 package now includes the SeaView Mast Mount (base, not the mast bracket fitting riveted to the mast. New this is ~$350).

I will trade my Intellian d4 HD System for a Simrad 4G radar or 3G+$. Stop watching rain; watch football…

Offers?

HD Satellite System still for sale.
Did not hear from Motion30 in response to my Private Message...

The SeaView mounting base is included. The mast brackets, like I have, are 2x$30 from SeaView. They have other brackets for other kinds of installs.

This system is a bargain at the reduced asking price. If I did not already have a working Intellian, I would snap this up. It was a bargain before the price was reduced. Wiring is straight-forward; the coax cable is the power supply.
