Morning Everyone,

Look what arrived last week!

As most of you remember,my 2.0m Elsat was beyond repair,and could only get sats that a 0.9m could allso could.

I got his little sucker via a local installer friend.

Its a K-tronix 3.1m,cam with a Californai LNB ,and a Superjack 24" motor.

Weeee!Lets see whats hiding out there in the universe.:)

I like how you call it 'little sucker'.

In the UK we call 45cm call - whereas 3.1m is wider than my yard!

Glad you guys like it!:)

I got my first transmission on it at 5pm last night.It came from Atlantic Bird 3.
First program was Radio from Sera Leone!

Signal Quality was 90%
Signal Strenght was 75%

This was a rough 5min adjustment,but the results are super.

I`ll come post the pics of it mounted this evening when i`am home again.

Cant wait to go get those Arabs on BADR26E.

I have to start reading up on the Super Jack motors now,how they work,and the Polar Mount Brackets
