In that case: come to Norway, have fun! VSAT terminals have a Part 15 
like (unlicensed) status here, for radiated power up to 80 dBW eirp. 80 
dBW corresponds to a kW from a 50 dBi antenna, or any other combination 
you fancy. I think you are supposed to aim at the satellites, but you 
may be unlucky and miss.
