VertexRSI 6.3m Satellite Antenna installation at Hellas-Sat Teleport on Cyprus.

VertexRSI 6.3m Satellite Antenna installation at Hellas-Sat Teleport on Cyprus

In March and April 2021 Skybrokers delivered, installed and commissioned two used and refurbished Earth Station Antennas with new RF chain at Hellas-Sat Teleport on Cyprus. The project was complex and required lots of procurement, planning and logistics. We delivered an used and fully refurbished Andrew 5.6m and a VertexRSI 6.3m antenna, both with new redundant HPA, LNA and BDC systems, tracking and waveguide runs. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 events caused unexpected delays but our project and installation team was able to finish successfully. The two Earth Station Antennas installed at Hellas-Sat Satellite Operator were commissioned end of June 2021.
