The first two are pretty self explanatory, moving East and West, the position i presume is to send the dish to a pre-saved position, reference point is normally zero, East and West limits are to stop your dish crashing into the wall, delete limits, self explanatory and find satellite is i presume for using USALS to drive to a satellite.

The degrees on the bracket of the dish are for elevation, the degrees on the motor bracket will be either elevation or lattitude.

What make is the motor, I would advise that you add it to your profile, then you won't have to keep posting it. Some have a lattitude scale and an elevation scale, if it is a lattitude, then you put your lattitude, you will then need to calculate the dish elevation, called declination in motor setup, this calculation should be in the motor instructions.

No, the elevation referred to is the elevation of the satellite in the Sky and will be somewhere between 28 and 30 degrees, but that will not be what you adjust the dish scale to, as the motor armature has an offset angle.

Download the Calculator from www.smw.se and it will give you the elevation for 1W.

What does your motor instructions say the scale on the side represents?

Well done, it's a great feeling when everything falls into place, and you can get loads of extra channels without lining "Ruperts" pockets.

hi pothead,
and now you have the taste of it, all you have to do is keep twiddling with it until you get the full 45e to 43w, thats when you crack out the booze
