What is Automatic Skew on a Motorhome Satellite System?

What is Automatic Skew and do I need it?

If you are looking to purchase a Satellite System it’s no surprise that many customers feel
bombarded with questions that they really don’t understand. So here at Motorhome Supplies we have put together this simple post to explain Automatic Skew, what it is and why you might need it.

Automatic Skew is also known as Auto Skew or LNB Skew, these are both the same thing.

Automatic Skew means that you don’t need to climb onto the roof of your Motorhome or
Caravan to adjust the LNB Skew. Instead, the Skew automatically rotates the LNB to
maximise Satellite reception.

Automatic Skew is a requirement when travelling as far as Spain and Portugal as it is necessary to rotate the LNB to compensate for the polarisation deviation or skew angle caused by the curvature of the earth.

If you are travelling within the United Kingdom and Northern France, Automatic skew IS
NOT NECESSARY.  We have a range of Oyster Satellite Systems for every location and budget!
