Description This is exactly what the novice needs to align any satellite dish for optimum reception. Can be used for digital and analogue reception. This meter can save you a fortune in call out charges from satellite installers! Once you get the hang of using this you will wonder why you never gave it a go before! Lets have a look at exactly what you get when you purchase this meter: Satellite signal meter with moving coil meter, backlit display and audible alignment tone. Patch Lead English instruction sheet Here is some more back ground information and technical details of what you do with this meter when you get it. Optimal alignment of a satellite dish is essential for trouble free reception. Movement of only a few millimeters can have a drastic effect on the signal strength and you will be rewarded with the message "no satellite signal present" on your television screen. A satellite dish has two main alignment adjustments, the azimuth which is the left to right or east to west position. The other adjustment is the elevation which is the up and down tilt of the dish. Using a compass you can set the azimuth to the correct value, for example 28.2 degrees east of south for Astra 2D which is the Sky / Freesat satellite. The elevation is then adjusted to the correct value using the scale on the dish bracket if it has one. If there is no scale or you have no compass then you can copy another satellite dish close by or simply use trial and error. If you initially set the azimuth correctly using a compass then the elevation is an easy adjustment. Failure to set the azimuth correctly will cause you to align the dish on the wrong satellite.

Absolutely perfect, took only 2 mins to hook up and adjusted my dish very easily. No batteries required, item is powered via sky box. One wire to box and included short wire to dish. Have a better signal than when it was set up by sky, had some rain the other day and no interference at all. I am very pleased I bought this item and it was so well priced.

Once I had worked out how to use it it was very helpful. Couldn't have done the job without it. More instructions would have been appreciated

My sky dish was slightly out of focus. £65 for an engineer to come out for a two minute job. Thought i'd give this a try first, £7.99 and free speedy delivery. Great little machine. Instructions can be a bit vague but there are videos on the internet showing what to do step by step. Anyone who has a sky dish should have one of these. Highly recommend.
