IDD CI24 ECONO MM Penta 1.20 Galaxy II 1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.
Well obviously you have not read many of the threads here where people do have problems. In general it is because:- 1. People are trying to assemble and operate equipment they are unfamiliar with. 2.Trying to lock onto and track an arc of satellites in the sky which they unable to see. 3. Using equipment that may or may not be assembled perfectly as in the case of the pole needing to be perfectly vertical in all planes, which in itself is not that easy to achieve. 4 . Add to that not selecting the due south satellite correctly thus not transcribing the exact arc of the Clarke curve 5. On top of which receiver problems i.e transponder frequency SR rates and FEC not set correctly it all in all adds up to a lot of variables and you only need to mess up on one and you will have disappointing results.
Having said that there are plenty of people here who can get you back on track.:-thumbup
Hmmm,its not going be easy as i thought I have tried to read some of the threads but find them hard to follow(to much tech jargon),also been on this website for info: w**.duwgati.com. Any how i will read up some more over the next few weeks. Cheers Darren
go for the motorised option,you'll most likely end up with it anyways.Theres some good not so expensive motors,Motek is good.if your going for the motor idea then i would recommend a dish in the 80-110cm range.Triax88cm would be a good choice :-).Once installed you should have a lot of fun exploring what channels you can receive.GOOD LUCK!!
So,from what i've gathered,you get the dish somewhere near right then let the reciever do the rest,providing the receiver has the ability to move the dish.The one i want to buy is the Technomate 1500 which has this function
