VertexRSI 6.1m antenna installed for M-Three Satcom in Rome Italy

A VertexRSI 6.1m antenna was successfully installed for M-Three Satcom in Rome, Italy. The installation was performed by a three-member project and installation team in 2017.


In December 2017 Skybrokers delivered and installed an used and refurbished VertexRSI 6.1m Ku-band Earth Station antenna at the M-Three Satcom Teleport in Rome, Italy. We had to overcome some logistical challenges for the delivery of the antenna parts in busy Rome. The delivery had to be planned on a Sunday to avoid traffic congestions at the local industrial area where the Teleport was located. Detailed planning of the delivery and unloading equipment took away some headaches for the customer.

The antenna was fully refurbed including reflector panel painting (2 coats), jack screws oiled & greased and hardware kits and new motors were supplied. The installation and commissioning was successfully finished by a two-member installation team in December 2017.
