    What will StarLink look like on your device? Looks like one listing per overhead satellite; if one gets blocked it switches to the next in line.

    SpaceX is adding shifts to their antenna production facilities.

    StarLink phased array antenna, which tracks the overhead satellites without moving. It selects a primary and a spare. If the primary's signal degrades it switches to the spare and selects a new backup.
