Q: I have a Purple lettered Status 530 and my friend has an Orange lettered Status 530. What is the difference between the two colours?
A: The Purple lettered Status 530/540's have the amplifer built into the head of the antenna, whereas the Orange lettered Status 530/540's have the amplifier built into the box in the cupboard. The performance capabilities are completely identical.

Please be aware that Orange/Purple units will not work together. The rule of thumb is that the lettering of the head of the Status 530/540 MUST match the lettering that is shown on the box in the caravan/motorhome.
