The Intellian i5 US System directly addresses the needs of offshore cruising vessels ranging from 40-60' in lengths.
The radome diameter of the i5 is 61cm (24") and it delivers extended coverage with a compact size. Intellian's signature iQ2 technology delivers quicker and quieter signal tracking and simple installation for the ultimate customer experience. The system's Wi-Fi enabled antenna control unit (ACU), provides the option to manage the system wirelessly via PC or Mobile Device, using Intellian's graphically intuitive control application, Aptus.
Just the Right Fit
The i5 is the world's first 20" satellite TV antenna purpose built for offshore cruising vessels in the 40-60' range. It's performance enables reception of TV service throughout the Bahamas, Caribbean and Mexico, while it's size is better suited for vessels under 60' in length.
Simple & Easy installation
With a single cable to connect the antenna and the ACU, the i5 system is quick and easy to install. Our intuitive ACU features a front panel display with functional keys and requires minimal setup so you can begin to enjoy TV programs in no time.
Quicker & Quieter
Intellian's patented iQ2 technology delivers the best user experience available on the market today. An advanced signal searching algorithm acquires the satellite 4-5 times faster than conventional methods. Intelligent, real time beam analysis holds the signal and reduces overall motor movement by up to 80%, eliminating annoying background noise while at anchor or in the slip.
The i5 includes a built-in GPS, which facilitates an easier installation by eliminating the need to integrate with the vessel's system. Additionally, the GPS enables faster signal acquisition and improves overall tracking performance.
Standard All Americas LNB
The i5 is built to cruise offshore throughout the Americas. For this reason it comes standard with Intellian's own All America's LNB, meaning users will not have to swap LNBs when sailing between regions.
Wireless Control via Aptus
Built-in Wi-Fi enables the ACU to be wirelessly managed and controlled via Aptus PC or Mobile, Intellian's graphical antenna control software. Aptus user-friendly displays vital performance metrics in a graphical format that simplfies operation. It even includes an auto diagnostic function designed to help solve problems quickly should they arise. The Aptus Mobile application is available in the Apple Store and through Google Play.
Occasionally satellite TV service providers make unannounced changes to their network that cause outages for marine users who do not receive regularly scheduled updates via their at home dish. Aptus Mobile automatically checks for these updates, enabling users to stay current with any changes through a simple mobile app process.
Tune in your favorite HDTV channels
Intellian's i5 recieves HD channels from any Ku- band TV service. Enjoy HD programming whether cruising in the US, Mexico or the Caribbean.

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.Read More
It’s no secret that anglers have been the means by which invasive species and non-native fish have spread to new water bodies in the past. Fishermen have even been known to transport some of their favorite fish to new areas on purpose so that they can catch them a little closer to home. And the results of those actions have not always been ideal. In Ontario, Canada, fishermen have taken non-native bass and stocked them into what were historically lakes dominated by brook and cutthroat trout. The actions have impacted ecosystems, but scientists have been unable to broadly study the effects because they didn’t have enough data. But that is no longer the case for some Ontario lakes, as a study from biologists at the University of Toronto shows.Read More
