In contrast to the Crystop product variant LIGHT S 65, the AUTOSAT LIGHT FO inclusive 1-push-button control unit works with a flat antenna measuring 45 x 20 cm.
At 30 cm, this antenna has a very small turning radius. As a flat antenna, this system is far less susceptible to wind than one with an offset mirror. When connected to the electronics of your vehicle engine, the system automatically moves to the travel position when you start it.
The reception range of this flat antenna with the satellite ASTRA1, 19.2° East, is excellent everywhere, despite its size of "only" 45 cm. And that with complete freedom of choice with regard to the optional receiver. Microprocessor controlled, the AUTOSAT LIGHT FO with its digital search system is usually ready to receive within 60 to 90 seconds.
The compact design, the minimal dimensions and the low weight characterize this satellite system. The use of metal gears in a high-quality bearing also stands for proven and reliable mechanics that you can enjoy for a long time. In addition, there are no electronics in the outdoor area. Finally, the control unit housed in the high-quality metal housing stands for uncompromising quality. This is CRYSTOP "Made in Germany"!

In this case, "SINGLE" stands for the possibility of maximum reception of "only" one TV program.
With an optional "TWIN" equipment, on the other hand, a maximum of two TV programs can be watched at the same time. However, this assumes that you have a "TWIN receiver" and another TV set!
What is the difference between the FU version and the almost identical FO SAT system from Crystop?
In contrast to the FO variant, the AutoSat Light FU can be lowered flat behind the metal housing of the control unit, which means that it is only 11 cm high when retracted. The FO variant, on the other hand, is above the level of the metal housing of the control unit when it is retracted and has a height of 22 cm in this state.
For the considerable height advantage, the FU variant also requires more space on the vehicle roof than the FO system and, due to its slightly different lowering mechanism, also has a slightly larger turning radius of 45 cm (FO = 30 cm). In the technical and optical area, however, both systems are almost identical.
The FU is therefore particularly predestined for vehicles when roof structures have to be as flat as possible so that it fits under the roof of a parking carport, for example.
With its extremely small turning radius of just 30 cm, the FO has the great advantage of being able to find its place on an already cramped vehicle roof without getting in the way of other superstructures.
