I need a little help with my First Strike 1 (FS1). I have been reading the extensive instructions available but I am not too clear on the LO (local oscillator frequency) and 22 Khz settings.
I have entered 09750 for Lo, and left the 22Khz as is. Is this correct for my location? and what would it be in Malaga.
Any help please?

Local oscillator setting should be either universal, or 9750/10600, with 22Khz being auto. Not sure what options they have on the meter.

The LO field is numerical obviously and is inserted manually with up to six digits.
The 22 Khz is either on off as far as I can gather.
So what decides what the LO entry should be?; is it dependent on the location?. Something to do with the LNB but I don´t quite understand it.

It's the LNB type and the majority of LNBs used in Europe are Universal type, dual band. The local oscillators for a Universal LNB are 9750 and 10600, with the 22khz tone being used to switch between low and high band, off for low band and on for high band.

Low Band is from around 10700 MHz to around 11700 MHz.

High Band is from around 11700 MHz to around 12750 MHz.
