To flat mount or use on a vehicle flat mounted you need to disconnect the motors, you holesaw into the back and pull the plug, there are also several ways to remove the leg. Tons of youtube videos on this now.

Also all you RV accounts are going to get throttled HARD at KOH, honestly ill be surprised if you have much useable service at all, I bet there is close to 500 of them on the lakebed by then lol.

curious if there's a shitload of units in a temporary location if the density will flag with Starlink?
For sure if you are supposed to have it at home, as fish said, MH accounts should get throttled, less then if you were registered 100+ miles away with a stationary plan... I think

Yet another reason.... Viva Baja!!

If starlink is meant to be for the masses, I would assume they plan on having many, many units operating in a dense area. Think high rise apartments.

The idea is to aggregate signal but that is all dependent on more birds as of now, so you can still bond as with 5G, LTE. As @pjc had mentioned prior (they have a FB group).

This should be perfect with the Cradlepoint Router in tandem to produce lighting remote service.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can Starlink service be aggregated with other broadband sources, such as LTE, 5G, or wired?

Yes! And this is actually a great solution for the unpredictable nature of Starlink’s performance and its downtime issues. By using an SD-WAN device that supports broadband bonding, all available broadband sources, including Starlink satellite, cellular, and/or wired lines, can be aggregated to ensure that any single outage (such as the Starlink system being unavailable) will not be noticed by the user, because the device will seamlessly manage and aggregate the connections (satellite, cellular or wired) into a single virtual and reliable Internet pipe.

But be careful. Most SD-WAN solutions on the market either do not have this capability at all, or the resulting performance is less than adequate. Mushroom Networks has been successfully aggregating satellite communications for years and their SD-WAN devices are the perfect complement to your new Starlink system that may have unpredictable downtime and performance degradation issues that are common with satellite.

Now you can do the mesh network I was talking about prior, with a few of these units strategically placed around the course.

They haven't finished the putting up the entire LEO satellite network, not saying they won't, but making some pretty big assumptions on density and then whats everyone getting for upload speeds. It's definitely moving faster than originally anyone thought.

You're not covering the course "with a few" units...

Firstnet worked amazing at KOH last year, zero issues...total speed at all times, but starlink will work for everyone....good deal.

Not trying to squash any ambitions and maybe coming from the broadcast tv world, where seamless, multi-camera coverage for Bike races (Tour of California, Tour of Utah), Triathlons (Iroman and Olympics) and Marathons (New York, Chicago and Boston) is what is expected for the broadcaster.

Starlink is going to be and already is some areas a game changer...

Right on the Starlink web page they promote themselves as being the internet provider where other options are not available.

"High-speed, low-latency broadband internet in remote and rural locations across the globe. $110/mo with a one-time hardware cost of $599." --Copied right from the website.

I doubt they will do anything extra to accommodate all the usage at KOH next year.

It really comes down to their coverage density per cell at H3 Hex Level 5, or about 15 miles across. This coverage density is universal across the planet. So, if they can service 50 user terminals (UT) in a cell in a metro area, they can do the same at KOH. Does that make sense?

It absolutely makes sense. As long as the H3 hits the X3 and both hit the Turbo R within 15 miles you will see the Talon win! I say the Starlink will handle thousands of users.

if they don't throttle back due reaching system saturation...it doesn't have unlimited bandwidth

will It work, probably, will it support hundreds of users, thats the million dollar question

Sounds perfect for the Compound. I'm going to look into this.

Thousand.

There will be a couple hundred on race vehicles alone ;)
DAVE! How do you keep doing this year after year? (Making the event ground breaking)
That's a big hint that next year is going to be a game changer.... again!!
