I have had it for over a year now.  At first service had some dead spots since the constellation wasn't as filled out as now.  For the last few months it has been the best internet connection I've ever had in my rural hicksville hermit shack.

Nicholas D. Wolfwood: The 100th launch of a pre-flown booster.


100% success rate for pre-flown boost so far assuming successful deploy.

Here's the updated list of successful SpaceX Missions. I've realigned the dates and order for upcoming flights. Last year was a record, with Thirty-One missions.  There are currently 61 listed so far for this year, with more Starlink missions to come! We can count on some of these slipping into 2023 or later, for any one of myriad reasons, but 2022 will certainly be another record year.  SpaceX's launch cadence is about one launch every 6.7 days so far; we'll see if they can maintain that rate.

Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Well, *that* wait for confirmation was worrisome!


Better to wait then to to risk calling a successful landing when it is really in a million pieces. They'd have a hard time living that down.

/And the mission is still s success if they lose the booster.

8tReAsUrEz: Seems 100th time wasn't the charm


Yeah, the fact that this one was the 13th flight for this booster, and that wait for confirmation of the landing, had me worried that we'd lost this one.

Not superstition, just afraid they'd hit some component failure from all the reflights.

Are they going to retire boosters eventually? I thought they were only planning to do 10 flights each. Will they keep going until one fails?

The original plan was 10 flights, then a full refurb, then 10 more flights, lather, rinse, repeat.

They had stated back at the beginning that they believed a booster could go for up to 100 flights.

Now, with a fair amount of experience and examination of the actual flown boosters, they feel that the boosters are doing better than they anticipated, and it looks like the full refurb after 10 missions is not necessary.  We'll have to wait and see how far they can push them.

I don't know if there are any plans to 'retire' boosters.

(Maybe a nice ceremony with a gold watch, some cake, a nice plaque?)

Seems like rain and snow will still get a vote. I'm sure a thousand times better than the alternatives but I wonder what happens when a large amount of people sign up, bandwidth wise.

Really heavy rain storms do cause some problems but it's not as bad as I expected to be honest.  As for snow the self heating dish does a pretty good job of melting it off.  Once I did have to tell the dish to go into stow mode (it rotates the flat end to point nearly at the horizon) to let snow slide off after a really heavy storm.  I was back online in a few minutes after unstowing it.

SpectroBoy: Any farkers got starlink?

pros? cons?


I've waited over 20 years for this connection. Ordered it a year ago February and received my initial kit in April of this year. It arrives with a small stand that elevates it about 12 inches off the ground and instructions say to place it in various locations and let it collect data for 12 hours.. The app then shows any obstructions and gives data relative to availability and outages. I knew I required a pole mount so I ordered a pole and longer cable from Starlink in preparation for mounting at my app established best location which is about 80 feet north of our house. The cable comes with a warning that it is not for direct burial so I dug a trench and used 1 1/2 inch PVC pipe as a conduit from the house to the pole mount. I did cut down 2 trees to reduce obstruction.

After mounting, the installation process is to plug the cable into the antenna, plug the other end into the router / modem and the plug the router into the electrical socket. Then look out the window and watch the antenna move and search for best signal. After the antenna stops moving, 2 minute maybe, the app says online and then just connect devices to the router.

Last week I added a three unit mesh network from Starlink. Install process was plug in to power and place where needed. Very easy.

We currently have 13 devices  connected through the Stalink connection. Three 4K Firesticks, 2 tablets, 2 PC's, 2 Iphones and a security system and AWomanofInterest 's data heavy work connection. All work very well. Maximum observed down load was 167 MB/S. Latency max is 24 ms minimum and 85 ms maximum per the app.

My total costs, from memory, are:

Starlink starter kit     $590.00
Starlink pole             $55.00
Starlink 150' cable   $93.00
Starlink wall kit         $37.00
Conduit + concrete  $165.00
Starlink mesh
routers (3)               $390.00

Total                        $1330 (Does not include Illinois Sales Tax)

Having experienced StarBand, DirecWay, Hughes, AT&T Cellular (50 G = $80) and Verizon Cellular (40 G = $153) Starlink wins hands down.
