hi guys.

guess what? just moved house and can't get my dish to lock onto hispasat anymore. The technician came around and spent 3 hours trying to point it out to hispasat but no luck.
now is is telling me I need to get on the roof or at least much higher up.

the only problem with this, is that I am convinced the guy is pointing up not to 30w but well away from it. Is there a way i can check it myself?

he says hispasat is well down in the horizon so we need to go higher up. at my other place, the lnb was in a much more vertical line, although the dish was like 10 metres higher up.

any thoughts? please help

thank you.

P.s dish is 90cm and lnb is 0.3

Blimey, it's not that low. I've just put a 60cm dish on a pole 3 ft. from the ground pointing at Hisp, with a 6 foot fence 10 foot away, and the signal's belting in here in Cambs.

How far is your dish off the ground?

hi Llew.
thank you for reply.

we have tried to have fixed at about 3 metres (around 10ft.).there's an house about 30 yards away that is definitely higher but am still convinced the guy is getting it wrong.

I know sky is 28°E, so what i did was to draw a straight line across to w. that should, in theory because I hardly know a thing about satellites, give me the right position - 2°

what do you think?

Why not buy a sat meter for €10 from Lidl and set it up yourself? I get hispasat but the dish is on the chimney. It is there and strong!

Yes, if you're having a go yourself, a sat finder is needed. If you have a signal on the meter at what you think is Hispasat, connect your receiver to the LNB and tune to one of the FTA channels on a strong transponder (11632H or 12.012V are a good choice). It's all a matter of trial and error, but patience should pay off (if of course you really are clear of the house opposite).

I assume you have just a straight dish / LNB setup, not motorised.
