On Fox, they showed the antennas for their "Video Phones."  The voice is
done by what looks like a small patch antenna.  The video is done by a
larger patch.  They can set up just about anywhere.

It's amazing.

I'd love to get one of their stationary KU systems and use the antennas for
amateur satellite use!  Those are slick.
