IMO and SOLAS
The equipment described within this document is intended for use
on leisure marine boats and workboats not covered by International
Maritime Organization (IMO) and Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS)
Carriage Regulations.
Geographic location
Satellites outside of North America transmit signals on a linear
polarization, this means signals are transmitted horizontally and
vertically. Satellites covering North America transmit circularly
polarized signals that rotate. If the rotation is clockwise towards the
direction of propagation, it is called right-hand-circular (RHC). If the
rotation is counterclockwise, it is called left-hand-circular (LHC).
You cannot receive signals that have linear polarization on a system
that is set up for circular polarization, or vice-versa.
The STV System will receive signals from selected satellites in the
following areas.
Circular polarization:
• North America
Linear polarization:
• If your geographic location changes, you may need to:
– Adjust the antenna low noise block (LNB) as appropriate for the
area in which you are operating.
– Change your control board, ACU software and satellite
receivers (IRDs).
For full details of changing your geographic area of operation,
contact Raymarine Product Support.

2.1 Preparation
EMC installation guidelines
Raymarine equipment and accessories conform to the appropriate
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations, to minimize
electromagnetic interference between equipment and minimize the
effect such interference could have on the performance of your
system
Note: Where constraints on the installation prevent any of
the above recommendations, always ensure the maximum
possible separation between different items of electrical
equipment, to provide the best conditions for EMC performance
throughout the installation
Suppression ferrites
Correct installation is required to ensure that EMC performance is
not compromised.
Raymarine cables may be fitted with suppression ferrites. These
are important for correct EMC performance. If a ferrite has to be
removed for any purpose (e.g. installation or maintenance), it must
be replaced in the original position before the product is used.
For optimum EMC performance we recommend that wherever
possible:
Use only ferrites of the correct type, supplied by Raymarine
authorized dealers.
• Raymarine equipment and cables connected to it are:
– At least 1 m (3 ft) from any equipment transmitting or cables
carrying radio signals e.g. VHF radios, cables and antennas.
In the case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased
to 7 ft (2 m).
– More than 2 m (7 ft) from the path of a radar beam. A radar
beam can normally be assumed to spread 20 degrees above
and below the radiating element.
Connections to other equipment
Requirement for ferrites on non-Raymarine cables
If your Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment
using a cable not supplied by Raymarine, a suppression ferrite
MUST always be attached to the cable near the Raymarine unit.
Parts supplied
The following parts are provided for a 33STV system:
• The product is supplied from a separate battery from that used
for engine start. This is important to prevent erratic behavior
and data loss which can occur if the engine start does not have

A Raymarine 33STV system needs either a 12 V dc or 24 V dc
power supply.
If the IRD(s) and television(s) require a 220/240 V ac power supply,
a suitable dc-to-ac converter must be fitted, to provide the necessary
power from the boat’s dc power supply.
Grounding
These grounding requirements are applicable for Raymarine
equipment supplied with a separate drain wire or screen.
33STV Satellite TV User’s Guide
• The product power cable drain conductor (screen) must be
connected to a common ground point.
1. Power cable to product
2. Drain (screen)
• It is recommended that the common ground point is a bonded
ground, i.e. with the ground point connected to battery negative,
and situated as close as possible to the battery negative terminal.
If a bonded ground system is not possible, a non-bonded RF
ground may be used.
3. Bonded (preferred) or non-bonded RF ground.
4. Battery
Implementation
If several items require grounding, they may first be connected
to a single local point (e.g. within a switch panel), with this point
connected via a single, appropriately-rated conductor, to the boat’s
common ground. The preferred minimum requirement for the path
to ground (bonded or non-bonded) is via a flat tinned copper braid,
with a 30 A rating (1/4 inch) or greater. If this is not possible, an
equivalent stranded wire conductor maybe used, rated as follows:
Bonded ground system (preferred)
• for runs of <1 m (3 ft), use 6 mm2 (#10 AWG) or greater.

D11709-1
• for runs of >1 m (3 ft), use 8 mm2 (#8 AWG) or greater.
RF ground system (alternative)
In any grounding system, always keep the length of connecting
braid or wires as short as possible.
Important: Do NOT connect this product to a positively-grounded
power system.

5.1 Introduction
5.2 Satellite coverage
This section contains satellite and tracking information and includes:
As satellite signals can be affected by climatic conditions and
by solar activity (sun spots, solar flares), the coverage is not
guaranteed.
• Summaries of satellites and service providers for the different
geographic locations.
• Satellite tracking information
Refer to the individual satellite providers home page for up to date
information and coverage maps for satellites.
Note: Reception is affected by climatic conditions, the coverage
indicated by providers is not guaranteed.
Climatic conditions
Climatic conditions that can cause a significant reduction of signal
level include:
• Rain
• Snow
• Thick fog
The most common of these conditions is rain, which will reduce
the signal from the satellite. The heavier the rain the higher the
signal loss.
The effect of this signal loss is that the antenna’s ability to remain
locked to the satellite signal becomes severely affected. This in turn
means degradation or in some cases a complete loss of satellite
signal.
When the amount of rain in the atmosphere decreases the antenna
will reacquire the satellite signal.
