Titosaat & Sons Ltd, known in the early days of 1980s as SATELLITE TVRO SYSTEMS, are the pioneers and experts in satellite television, not only in Cyprus but in the Middle East and Europe, too. Experiments for satellite TV reception began in 1980 with a 3.0 meter solid one piece aluminium dish antenna (0.25 F/D) obtained from an ex MARCONI radar of British army surplus. With the first very rare satellite receiving equipment, mainly imported from USA, and with a very limited set of satellite data, we have succeeded to receive from C band the Russian channel PROGRAMME 1 (ORT1) from GORIZONT 7 & 9 at 14 dgs West & 53 dgs East and Armed Forces Radio Television Services (AFRTS) from INTELSAT F8 at 1 dg West including a few OTS & ECS satellites. Reception from Ku band satellites was made possible in the mid 80's with channels like RTL & 3SAT from EUTELSAT at 13 dgs East. Apart from the satellite dish, other system components included a C band LNA with N.T. 120K from AVANTEK - USA (then industry standard), a block-downconverter from NORSAT (Canada), CHAPARRAL C band feedhorn, a Ku band LNBF with N.F. 2.5 dB from DX (Japan) covering the 11-12 GHz band, manual satellite receivers from DX and Anderson Scientific Inc.(USA), as well as first hand information from the INTELSAT organization in New York. Some very valuable handbooks used at that time included the STTI'S International Satellite Television Reception Guidebook (1st edition 1982) by Stephen J. Birkill, Satellite Television Handbook by Stephen Reed (July 1980) and The World of Satellite Television by Mark Long and Jeffrey Keating (1984). Ever since, numerous satellite systems have been installed by our company all over Cyprus, ranging from fixed 1.0 meter to 5.0 meter fully-automatated motorized systems, for the reception of both analogue as well as digital satellite TV channels. The company gained its popularity primarily due to the fact that unbeatable quality systems second to none are offered and supplied to its customers, offering the best value for money, while providing at the same time a comprehensive after-sales service. Nowadays, our company offers the very latest state-of-the-art satellite equipment from USA and Europe, installed and configured for problem-free reception.
