How to tune the antenna to the satellite
After the installation of satellite dishes is complete, you can proceed to configure step. However, before doing so, find out all the necessary parameters for proper configuration.
Instruction how to set up a satellite antenna
First, find out at reception with a satellite antenna, you will configure. In addition, you need to know the azimuth, elevation, angle and direction of the converter to a specific satellite. If you do not have this information, contact the specialists in satellite equipment or visit a specialized website where, by entering the name of the satellite and the geographic coordinates of the place of installation of the antenna, you will get all the required settings.
In accordance with the findings follow the rotation converter. Depending on how the antenna is positioned in relation to the 75th meridian, rotate in a clockwise or counterclockwise. If you take the data from the site, keep in mind that the direction of rotation of the converter where indicated on the condition that the person is behind the mirror antenna. Be careful on the small scale of the converter division corresponds to 5 degrees, and large - 10. Using a compass azimuth set aside in a clockwise direction from the North Pole.
The angle is calculated for the different antennas without regard for each antenna offset angle. If you have an antenna World Vision, Golden Interstar, or Supral, the value of the elevation angle of the manufacturer is already considered at the scale offset based on the antenna mount. If you have another brand of antenna, the elevation calculated by the formula: PA = PA (dishpointer) 0-240.
Setting up a satellite dish will be successful if you have specialized equipment. If not applicable, adjust the antenna using the receiver, but keep in mind that the ideal setting to spend on the scale of the receiver will be extremely difficult. Also note that the low-quality setting of the antenna will not give you the power headroom to bad weather conditions, due to which the signal deteriorates.
Turn on the receiver's "Setup" menu and select the required settings TP companion and one of its transponders. Then adjust the scale and quality of the signal power, focusing on the importance of quality: with a good signal, it should exceed 50%.
By changing the direction of the mirror by moving the antenna towards the satellite, try to achieve the maximum signal level indicator. Thereafter, the antenna is ready for use.
