Hi Guys

I got this heavy dish und usually move it per hand to next satellite:-fcm
Now I'd like to use a machine instead of walking in the cold out there. what kind of positioner do you advise me? I've seen Motek V-Box II , Jäger Superjack V-Box II und 36V Ost/West Hand-Positioner SuperJack EW101. Are there so solid to shake that thing? Does anybody make experiment yet? Besides I'm planning to go for C band.

Thanks.

Hi, is there an actuator on the dish already and you just need a v-box? Or do you need an actuator also?

Cheers Huevos,

The actuator is already on the dish. I need only a v- box. But which one?

Most v-boxes are pretty much the same so I wouldn't worry too much. The only thing you need to know is does your actuator have an optical sensor. Optical sensor requires the v-box to have an extra 5 volt supply. If your actuator lead has four cables the actuator is a reed switch type and doesn't require this. If it has five cables it does.

Plug in the v-box and try it.

Hi mate.

I bought and installed it accordingly, it´s working:cool::) Now it´s the time to go C-band with my CM 135cm especially 5°w(I hope) but then after the icetime.



thanks

C Band transmitions are weak compared to KU band, so do not get disappointed if you find that you do not pick many channals with your size of dish. You may be alright on 5 w on EIRP dBW:38, recommended dish size:125-160 in Germany.
