Manhattan DJ-1997 FTA/IP MPEG-4 Satellite Receiver

Manhattan DJ-1997

In memory of Dave Johnson,
The DJ-1997 was named after Dave Johnson who passed on in 1997. Dave was a colleague of Mike Kohl, Jeff Schumann and Adrian Engle at Orbitron. We thought to honor his life’s accomplishments with naming of this receiver on behalf of his family. Dave was a kind, hard working person and a true advocate for the satellite industry. A proud American who raised a great family and built a wonderful home for them. He is truly missed!
