“In 1980 I had the privilege of being with the late Dr. Lester Sumrall for eight days and during this time joined him on different TV broadcasts. It was there that I got the vision of having a Christian Channel and Station. Since then I’ve been proclaiming it and today it has come into fulfillment. I can just say “Thank you Jesus for such grace!”
– Prophet Kobus van Rensburg

The Spirit Word Satellite Dish
Spirit Word has its very own Final Control Centre located right in the heart of South Africa.
Now, dreams and prophecies have come into fulfillment as the new Satellite Up-link Antenna and Equipment have been installed to form a small �Satellite Earth Station�.
From here the signal is being aired directly to satellite on the INTELSAT 10 C-Band platform running at 68.5 degrees east. This platform has one of the largest coverage footprints over the earth�s globe which allows wide signal distribution for the existing and other �potential� signal distributors.
This signal is then linked to the following feeds:
- INTELSAT 10 Ku-band, which covers the continent of Africa and small portions of Europe for DTH viewing.
- Then the HotBird Ku-band platform that reaches all of Europe, United Kingdom and the middle east for DTH viewing…
- Finally, the signal is also linked to the internet for live streaming…
The Satellite Up-link equipment, fully redundant, includes double Encoders and modulators with a 1+1 redundancy switch for virtually seamless switch-over when equipment needs maintenance. Double transceivers with an automatic redundancy switch have been connected to transmit the modulated signal. Underground cables connect the equipment from the server room to the equipment on the outside. Here the foundation has been re-enforced with a �½ a ton� of steel and concrete to make up a 20 ton foundation for the new 4.7m Prime Focus Antenna.
This secures the antenna to handle various weather conditions and wind speeds of over 100Km/h.
