Downloads & instructions

We do not sell kits or parts anymore. But, the MK3 Satellite Rotator is fully open source, allowing you to 3D-print the parts at home for free and solder the PCBs by hand if you are tech-savvy enough.  Enjoy!

If you invent upgrades or find new ways of using the SATRAN, we hope that you contact us and share your designs so we can post it here on the website for all to enjoy.
