Hi ,

I am setting up a Trax110 dish and h-h 99 Gold . What should the dish angle marker point to . I have set the h-h setting to approx 50 degress. I do not know what the off set of the dish is as its not detailed in the install doc.

Cheers M8

hi john,

I live 30km north of London . I have the long and lat and worked out that the but when setting the elivation should be set at approx 52 degrees on the h-h the dish mount this includes the declination . The dish is set at approx 40 degrees the dish is to close at the bottom .When set at Thor my arc is incorrect for 28 degrees .

Cheers M8

You don't need to know what the offset of the dish is, you simply need to find Thor with it.

Don't know the settings on your motor, some set to Lattitude, some to elevation, some have a scale for both, you need to make sure that you are reading from the same sheet. :)

Hi Rolf,

Just been looking through the installation manual for the Jarger SMR/SMO-99G .

My latitude is 50' 45 so this is approx 50.64 elivation and 7.11 declination.

So I should set the mount angle 57 .75 . I will give this a go . But I am sure I run out of space beween the mount and bottom of the dish .
I had no problems with my Triax 88 dish and mount .

Cheers M8 .

No, that sounds wrong, the declination is set on the dish not the motor and elevation is not the same as lattitude, the setting on the motor is either your lattitude, or the correct elevation figure, which is likely to be more like 38 - 40 degrees if you are North of london. As Lattitude increases, elevation decreases.

Hi

Problem sorted the information in the install guide was wrong . As you say it was wrong . I found an old h-h guide and it looks that the degrees were all wrong running back to front . So I set the dish at 50 degrees on the right side bracket and mount at 40 degrees in the end .Some fine tunning the weekend . Search on the sat and Icomplete the arc finding all the sats Thor to start with as you say as the start point and Hispas back to astra at 28 degrees. So much for the install manual !!!! Hope this helps somone else if they come across this post in the future.

Cheers for all your help .
