I have fitted a new dish up after my first one was damaged in the gales It is motorised by a Moteck SG 2100. Please what is the best method to realign the system and can an analogue reciever be used for the alignment method.
Thanks for any help

Yes, an anlogue receiver is a cracking tool for alignment, providing that there is an analogue channel available on your due South satellite.

My location is Lat:51:46:57N (51.7826), Lon:3:10:06W (-3.1684) should I use Thor as my due South satellite could anyone suggest a clear strong analogue transponder for alignment.
thanks
