Small Dish Man
- My Satellite Setup
- 2.0m Precision
- My Location
So I have located this sat and lost it again several times for no apparent reason?? I can be getting a strong signal one minute and nothing the next.
All very frustrating.
With this in mind is it possible to use 2 satellite dishes at the same time both pointed at the same satellite and somehow combine the signal into one?
The satellite is in inclined orbit as has been previously documented. The peak time will not remain constant, it currently gets earlier by approximately three and a half minutes each day. Also the window for peak time will diminish, as the level of inclination increases the satellite signal will be weaker for longer periods.
Currently the satellite is 0.514 degrees inclined, this means that it traverses a path above and below the arc elevation of +0.514 degrees to -0.514 degrees, ie, there is now over one degree of variance. This variance will get bigger with time. If you want to keep a constant lock on the satellite to ensure maximum signal strength at all times then you have two options. Either adjust your dish elevation manually each day, or, install an elevation actuator on your dish.
