    I had the longest outage yet in the last 14 months, 15 minutes of "searching" and no service.

    My parents have enjoyed Starlink so far
    They haven't noticed any outages, between not using it like the rest of us and the outages being so small. We had 6 people at their house the other weekend. Not once did anyone have an issue, notice an outage, or think it was too slow.

    They have even noticed more dishys popping up around town.

    The availability map above is surprising. I would have thought more of the USA would be active..

    It's /active/ but they won't let you place service there.

    :shrug: I think they've blocked out all the urban hexes from being 'service locations'. But under service portability they'll work just fine.

    The Wi-Fi scanner is kinda fun. The blue outline is roughly the shape of my house not including the garage I didn’t go into. Didn’t check the basement or upstairs either. The yellow X is where the router is at outside my back door in a weather proof box. I live in a rental so I can’t drill holes through the wall. I use a D-link mesh extender for normal use, this map reflects just the Starlink router coverage.

    Not specifically Starlink related, but a wicked cool satellite tracking website. Uses Streetview imagery and overlays the position of each satellite so you know where to be looking
