My Geotrack motor recently packed up and i replaced it with a motech 2100
I set the lat to 51 and timed at 13:05 i lined it up with 1w using the sun as my guide and did the declination by the nokias signal bar.
Is it really worth getting a beeper signal meter over the nokia ?

What sort of signal strength do you guys get from Sky News on 28E
Using a 88cm black mesh dish, I say sky news as im led to believe its high signal from this transponder.

I have a Skystar2 to show % or sky+(amstrad) or nokia 9600 to compare with you

Im sitting circa 60% on the skystar2

Some people like beepers more, i like the beeper feature on a instrument because you can hear easily for signal fluctations.

A meter is good but it doesn't respond as quick as the sound.
