hi to all after spending 25 mins lining a fixed dish up on 28e instead of 5 mins(due to being on wrong sat):confusedive just bought a satlook micro meter.now ive got a 1.2m dish which i think is pretty much following the arc ok and i seem to get all available sats ok.i bought it second hand 2 miles away and it was already set up,i just needed to find true south,but now ive got this meter i want to have a play with it(like you do).so what advice would anyone give to check if my dish is perfectly lined up or not ,which settings to alter and which not as i dont want to make it worse chhers guys:-worship

@iwol

When on sat,meter connected, if you pull slightly either up or down on the dish, If it gets better then your off the arc, but if you cant get it any better then your spot on. Try it on say 28e 1w and 30w.;)
