Tek2000 is Open for Business during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Tek2000 will continue to process and ship out online orders during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to our customers during these extraordinary times like never before, but will also be implementing certain measures to slow down the spread of the virus in our community.

Effective immediately, only one employee will be permitted to work in any of our warehouses on any given day. Walk in or pickup orders have been suspended. We will only process and ship out online orders.

Shipping with the main carriers like Purolator, UPS and Fedex will only take place once a week, and that will usually be on Mondays. This means that regardless of when you place your order, it will ship out the following Monday. The only exception to this rule will be a large order from a TV station or commercial client. Please contact us and we will arrange for a truck delivery appointment that is convenient for you.

Please be aware that to mitigate the spread of the virus, carriers like Purolator, UPS and Fedex have informed us, until further notice, that they do not require a signature from you when they deliver. They will leave your packages on the front porch or other location that you can specify to us when you place your order.

We hope all our customers stay safe and this pandemic is over sooner rather than later and life gets back to normal.

Antenna Production Suspended: Limited Inventory

Due to the recent outbreak of the Corona Virus epidemic in China, we have been forced to suspend all production of our antennas. At this time, our supply chains in China have become disrupted and it is nearly impossible to obtain any raw materials or manufactured goods from that country.

We do not know when things will return to normal. Workers are not returning to factories. Ports are not shipping containers. The country is in complete lock down.

At this time we have limited inventory of 10′, 12′, 13.5′ and 15′ antennas. This inventory won’t last more than 1-2 months. We are out of stock on 6′ and 8′ antennas and have been for a while. Other products like controllers, actuators, feed horns and LNBs are in short supply too.

We contacted everyone who expressed an interest in purchasing our products in the last two weeks and let them know about the situation and reserved their orders. Now we are releasing a public statement so everyone knows about the pending shortages.

If you are a TV or Radio station manager and need a large antenna, please contact us and we will reserve it for you. If you are an amateur satellite enthusiast and were planning to install a C-band dish this spring, you may want to purchase your antenna sooner rather than later. If our web store indicates something is in stock, then we have it in our warehouse and you can order it immediately.

We hope the situation in China gets back to normal soon, but there is no guarantee of that happening. In the meantime, we are looking at other supply chain options, including domestic manufacturing of certain products.

We now have 15 footer commercial grade mesh antennas in stock. This is a our largest antenna size. It comes with a dual-ring, heavy-duty mount and 12 panels. Available in traditional polar mount for tracking the satellite arc and fixed mount. A fully motorized Az-El-Skew mount will be available early next year.

This antenna is intended for fringe C-band satellite TV reception, TV stations, multi-satellite reception (up to 7 adjacent satellites) amateur astronomy research, moon bounce experiments, deep space probe communications reception and much more!

Depending on the model, pricing begins in the low $3,000 USD range. It ships by motor freight only. Dock-to-dock shipping, or if you don’t have a dock, they will unload it in front of your property. We also ship internationally by sea freight.

Antenna shipments to EU countries are now covered by CETA

C-Band Satellite Antenna
Sea Freight Shipment to Europe
EU destined shipments covered by CETA

ATTENTION TV stations, cable companies and c-band satellite TV enthusiasts in EUROPE: C-band antenna shipments to EU member countries are now covered by CETA (Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement). This new Canada-Europe trade agreement eliminates almost all tariffs on our antenna products!

Owing to a low Canadian dollar and free trade to EU member countries, Tek2000 is uniquely positioned to supply EU member customers with high quality antenna products at very affordable prices. We design and stock our own antenna products in Canada, so whether you need a single antenna or a hundred, we got you covered.

Don’t let the freight charges scare you away. The cost of sea freight shipping to Western Europe today is almost as low as truck freight shipping to the USA for the same antenna shipment and it usually takes less than 15 days to arrive at your nearest port.

We stock both consumer and commercial antennas in a wide range of sizes: 6 ft, 8 ft, 10 ft, 12 ft, 13.5 ft and 15 ft.

Arrival of Commercial Grade Mesh Antennas

Our warehouse has received several containers of both consumer and commercial grade 10′, 12′, 13.5′ and 15′ Mesh Antennas. The consumer models are available in polar mount only, whereas the commercial models come in polar mount, fixed mount and Az-El mount (special order). The commercial models use more steel and aluminum and are primarily targeted at TV stations and others looking for heavy-duty antennas.

We are currently filling back orders. Orders will ship out chronologically. This will take about 2 weeks and after that new orders will ship out almost daily.

The lighter consumer antennas ship by economical UPS ground freight while the larger and heavier commercial antennas go by LTL truck freight which takes a bit longer. We also ship worldwide by sea freight. We can deliver these antennas to most international countries within 20 business days and at excellent rates.

Single Orthomode Feeds in stock

We now carry single output orthogonal C-Band feed systems. They include a mini LNB which bolts to the end of the rectangular waveguide. We stock both the extended band (3.4 – 4.2 GHz) and anti-interference Wimax narrow band (3.7 – 4.2 GHz) type.

These commercial feeds are designed to receive a single microwave polarization and conduct it to the mini LNB for down conversion. The single mode orthogonal feed is generally considered more efficient than the dual mode orthogonal feed due to better impedance matching of the single only mode.

Use this feed if you only desire a single polarization or add a rotator to get both polarizations with the maximum possible C/N ratio.

The extended band feed is available for purchase here and the narrow band (Wimax) is available here.

Adjustable Exterior Wall Mounts Available

We now have adjustable exterior wall mounts available for C-Band dish installations. This mount is designed so that its position can be adjusted beyond the eave of a building. The bottom of the post should be buried in concrete or anchored to a pad.

You can purchase the adjustable exterior wall mounts here.

We have everything you need for every kind of big dish installation. You can view ALL our pole mast and accessory products here.

Mini Actuators for Powered Elevation and Declination

We now stock 6-inch and 12-inch (mini) heavy-duty actuators for powered elevation and declination control of our polar mount mesh antennas. All our mesh antennas sold after 2017 come with the elevation bracket where you attach the (mini) actuator. For powered declination, you will need to purchase the metal bracket kit along with the actuator.

We recommend the 12-inch actuator be used for powered elevation on 350cm or 400cm mesh antennas. We recommend the 6-inch actuator for powered elevation on 240cm and 300cm mesh antennas.

The 6-inch actuator is recommended for powered declination on all our mesh antennas.

An antenna with powered elevation or declination control will help track the satellite arc more accurately or allow you to transform your polar mount dish to an AZ-El mount. A separate VBox positioner or multi-axis positioner is required for control.

Actuators can be purchased here:
