hope those 25kg will keep it fixed, so it will survive the next storm…

… the future has arrived… thank you Elon! 🙂


another testrun:

it needs to be said also:

Created with GIMP

  • all bandwidth benchmarks done with https://www.nperf.com/en/
  • speed is okay
  • reliability pretty good (a little too early to tell, second day in testing, had to rewire the house X-D (and still not done))
  • plus: hook it up to an USV battery pack and be connected/make phone calls, even when power is lost (cell phone tower here has very little 30 to 45min of backup battery)
  • the only thing to worry: a strong solar storm could probably damage some or all satellites (but that would also damage the ISS). (The Solar Storm of 1859 “Carrington-Event” was the largest geomagnetic storm on record)
  • of course bandwidth may vary depending on many factors (weather, how many users are active) but it shows:
    • it works 🙂
    • 300MBit/s downstream bandwidth are possible with StarLink’s 40.000 satellites constellation & Dishy 🙂
    • Elon said, after software upgrades StarLink will even be usable mobile!

    • it is not hard to setup (Android (with Google Play enabled) or for iOS IPhone might be required for setup)
        • (for testing a plain field is perfect)
      • Dishy automatically scans the sky and orients it into the best position 🙂 (ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! 🙂 (and fascinating to watch)
      • Dishy will melt any snow that might sit on it (Dishy is connected to a PoE Adapter capable of delivering 180Watts through that very very long (30m?) cable)

So far So Happy! Finally proper internet connection! 🙂 (it was truly dramatic)

PS: hope also to support SpaceX mission to establish a sustainable permanent foothold on Moon and Mars with those

  • 459€ one-time-payment for the hardware “dishy” (and PoE power supply and StarLink stylish wifi router)
  • 100€ bucks a month

… totally worth it if the user is in internet-wise-under-served countries where the “established” investor-driven (0 investment into infrastructure) telecommunications companies could not be bothered to serve the customer and shares it with neighbors that are also internet-wise-under-served since decades.

Terminator Skynet AI Network: damn, those Terminator robots have good dentists!

Terminator Skynet AI Network: damn, those Terminator robots have good dentists!

“Skynet is a fictional artificial neural network-based conscious group mind[citation needed] and artificial general superintelligence system that serves as the enemy force of the Terminator

but then again: Google did not drop it’s “don’t be evil” motto for nothing…

SkyNet already exists IN CHINA!

the difference?: China is doing it openly… while “the West” is doing it secretly.

short version: 1984 needs to be avoided at any cost.

because: it is evil. (Google did not drop it’s motto “don’t be evil” for nothing)

in essence: 1984 are the dream come true for power addicted evil people, that divided the world ON PURPOSE in 3 “continents” that are in permanent war with each other, always blaming the other side for all that is bad (just so that the super rich elite can basically keep on exploiting the population which is living in poverty and blame it on the enemy).

this creates a a lot of suffering and unhappiness.

this is not how life is supposed to be.

the meaning of life is to be (sustainably) happy.

StarLink constellation web Dashboard:

thanks to Mike Puchol for that amazing dashboard https://starlink.sx/


see those red streeks/lines? those are StarLink sattelites in orbit… but not active/ready/in-position yet 🙂

also the coverage is right now:

  • USA
  • EU
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • South America
  • coming to the rest of the world soon

official starlink is still beta:

“Thank you for participating in Starlink’s Beta program!
During beta, users can expect to see data speeds vary from 50Mb/s to 150Mb/s and latency from 20ms to 40ms in most locations over the next several months as we enhance the Starlink system. There will also be brief periods of no connectivity at all.
As we launch more satellites, install more ground stations and improve our networking software, data speed, latency and uptime will
improve dramatically. For latency, we expect to achieve 16ms to 19ms by summer 2021.
Your Starlink Kit will arrive with your Starlink, wifi router, power supply, cables and mounting tripod.
Download the Starlink app for iOS or for Android to ensure no obstructions (trees, poles, etc.) will interrupt service at your desired install location.”

how does dishy work?

according to this site, dishy is sold by Starlink/SpaceX at 20% of it’s actual cost, so to make “pay off” it needs happy customers that want to use it long term for 100€ a month.

Dishy is actually a complete ARM Computer:

STM32 microcontroller made by STMicroelectronics

STMicroelectronics is a French-Italian Dutch-domiciled multinational electronics and semiconductors manufacturer headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland resulting from the merger of two government-owned semiconductor companies in 1987:

“Thomson Semiconducteurs” of France and “SGS Microelettronica” of Italy.

It is commonly called ST, and it is Europe’s largest semiconductor chip maker based on revenue.

While STMicroelectronics corporate headquarters and the headquarters for EMEA region are based in Geneva, the holding company, STMicroelectronics N.V. is incorporated in the Netherlands.

The company’s US headquarters is in Coppell, Texas. Headquarters for the Asia-Pacific region is in Singapore whilst Japan and Korea operations are headquartered in Tokyo. The company headquarters for the China region is in Shanghai.[1]

Revenue Increase €10.22 billion (2020)

together with its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, and markets semiconductor products in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas, and the Asia Pacific.

It operates through Automotive and Discrete Group;

Analog, MEMS and Sensors Group;

and Microcontrollers and Digital ICs Group segments.

The Automotive and Discrete Group segment offers automotive integrated circuits (ICs); and discrete and power transistor products.

The Analog, MEMS and Sensors Group segment provides industrial application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and application-specific standard products (ASSPs);

general purpose analog products;

custom analog ICs;

wireless charging solutions;

galvanic isolated gate drivers;

low and high voltage amplifiers, comparators, and current-sense amplifiers;

MasterGaN, a solution that integrates a silicon driver and GaN power transistors in a single package;

wireline and wireless connectivity ICs;

touch screen controllers;

micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) products, including sensors or actuators; and optical sensing solutions.

The Microcontrollers and Digital ICs Group segment offers general purpose and secure microcontrollers; radio frequency (RF) and electrically erasable programmable read-only memories; and RF, digital, and mixed-signal ASICs.

It also provides assembly and other services.

The company sells its products through distributors and retailers, as well as through sales representatives.

STMicroelectronics N.V. was incorporated in 1987 and is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.
