This my first post.

Great forum to exchange and learn ideas!!

Looking for a digital satellite meter. Any reccomendations? not a very expensive one but an accurate one.

Almost all stations on Hotbird have signal strength 32% and Quality is 95 to 100%...Read a thread about this in the forum....Rain affects signal strength? Guess yes...


Thanks

Unfortunately I think that "inexpensive" and "accurate digital satellite meter" are mutually exclusive!

You can use a cheap meter to get a rough alignment on a satellite and then use the signal quality reading of your satellite receiver to do the final alignment and LNB skew.
