"After the race in India all our equipment we used there was shipped to Abu Dhabi. Our 3 Gigasat dishes were already there because they are not allowed to be used in India, we shipped those before already". Gerben of Multi-Link Holland explains.

Gerben "In Abu Dhabi we needed besides that, the video edit set for the German broadcaster ZDF and a replacement uplink dish for TV Globo Brazil. The 2.4 m Gigasat we previously used for TV Globo is now sent to the USA where we will use it for another job, bobsledding".
