Tips & Tricks for Installers:
Recommended assembly and installation tools:
- 7/16″ wrench (2 helpful)
- 1/2″ wrench
- 1/2″ deep socket w/ ratchet
- 3mm hex (allen) wrench
- Make sure you have selected E19 for the satellite for Gen5 service! If you are not in a Gen5 coverage area, choose the E17 satellite instead!
- Make sure you have entered your LAT and LONG in the correct format within 35 feet of the antenna location!
- Make sure your mount is level! If it’s not level you will fight it for a long time in order to get the elevation settings correct!
- Make sure the elevation setting is correct! The engraved line below the nut is the mark for elevation on most of the antennas we offer!
- Make sure the transmitter/LNB polarity is set to the correct setting (L or R). If you fight it forever and cannot get a signal try changing it just in case!
- Use a real magnetic compass to find your azimuth. Most smartphones and tablets are not calibrated correctly and can be off by 10 or 15 degrees sometimes!
- www.dishpointer.com is a great resource that uses Google Earth satellite imagine to tell you which direction your antenna should be pointing from your location!
- Make sure you move the antenna extremely slow when panning the sky! 1/2 degree is a big movement and the system needs time to see and identify the satellite.
- Make sure your skew or tilt of the antenna is correct! There is a + and a – side, many people put it on +12 when it should be -12, or similar!
- Any signal strength under 30 is not a lock on the correct satellite! Check your settings, polarity, etc. and keep trying!
- It might help to power cycle your modem and start over if your modem has been powered up for more than 10 – 15 minutes and you are going back and forth in the menu!
Sometimes the modem can get confused, so a fresh start can help sometimes!
