    Default Starlink - Heard of it? Thoughts

    On the island (the one up North) there was a discussion about Stalink.

    It is one of Elon's babies for space based internet.

    I only assume they (we?) got on the short list is because it is in line with the Mi upper peninsula along with MN, ND, MT etc..

    So come time we build the construction hut for up on the island I should be able to get my hands on one dish for there and also for another to ship south. Probably will not get the one for down south until there are regulatory successes for Guat and Honduras and see if one can be boxed up and sent south in one of the regualr shipments.

    They are shooting up starlink satellites all the time, think send over 50 at a time, have seen several launches lately.

    Here is a link to a live satellite tracking.

    Nicaragua is getting sporadic coverage.

    Some videos I have reviewed say that you service is geolimited to 60mi (100km) of your physical address so so much for trucking a system down to Niclandia to try..

    The odd yellow arrays of satellites are apparently new launch units getting to their specified orbits - Looks to be 16 or 17 in two bunches and one massive line of 30 ish in today's map .
