Outernet uses a portable L-Band patch antenna. This directional antenna has a beam width of 40 degrees, so pointing is easy. Just aim in the general direction of the satellite. 

This antenna is housed inside Lantern, but if you are more of a do-it-yourselfer, you may buy an antenna to build your own receiver.
