Satellite dish installation
Satellite dish installation
Final adjustment swivel the satellite dish (your motor)
To set up, we need some light on which we will assess the accuracy of the antenna. As this indicator is applicable SATFAINDER, the scale level of the receiver on the TV screen. Includes equipment exhibiting at the receiver (receiver) transponder parameters with the strongest signal from the vertex and proceed to the satellite antenna alignment. When the signal of setting up a satellite, it is necessary to achieve the maximum values of the signal and to fix the antenna in this position. Next, you need to make sure that we correct our vertex Catch satellite and transponder scan. The channels must comply with the selected satellite and transponder.
If everything is in order and we Catch the desired satellite, it is necessary to apply a little dish first up, then down, without turning the locking nut. The signal at the same time should be reduced equally in both directions. If the signal is increased by feeding the antenna up, it does not matter, it is most likely a result of the suspension sag under the weight of the engine and the whole structure. In this case, loosen the mounting screws and adjust the elevation angle of the antenna to obtain maximum signal strength and re-tighten the screws. If the signal is increased by feeding the antenna down, it is likely the result of incorrect installation or non-vertical angle support. If the support is obviously a non-vertical direction north - south, then it can be corrected again be adjusted to the angle of elevation.
The final stage will install your motor control signal to the satellites in the extreme west and east. To do this, you must select two satellites with a strong signal to close in the value of the polar angles of rotation of the suspension to the west and east. Pivoted antenna has a motorized, one of these satellites by controlling the rotation angle of the motor on the scale. Tuned to the satellite, we check and remember the signal changes when applying the antenna up and down. Turn the antenna to the other satellite and also stores the signal change when submitting the antenna up and down. Now compare changes Segal feeding the antenna up and down the east and west satellites.
1. If the signal is reduced in both directions and on the West and on the East satellite, you are to be congratulated, the direction of the south have set very precisely and in this setting can be considered complete.
2. If on the western satellite signal is increased when applying upward, and on the east increased when filing down, then you have the suspension is directed eastward to the south. It is necessary to turn the whole structure together with the motor a little to the west and repeat setting on top of the satellite again, then perform the control signal at the extreme positions.
3. If on the western satellite signal is increased when filing down, and on the east increased feeding up, the suspension is directed to the south west direction. It is necessary to turn the whole structure together with the motor a little to the east and repeat the steps for setting up the antenna with your motor again.
4. If on the east and west of the signal is increased by feeding the antenna up, the angle of elevation is great and must be reduced, and the angle of declination slightly increase
5. If on the east and west of the signal is increased by feeding the antenna down, the elevation angle is small and needs to increase and decrease the angle of declination.
In the event that give 4 or 5 option, then you made a mistake when setting the suspension and you have to do surgery to turn the antenna to the west and the east several times slowly changing the angles of elevation and declination, do not forget to monitor the signal on top of the satellite. If 2 or 3 option, turning the dish together with the motor at a slight angle, do it all over again. It is possible that in the end you can get 4 or 5 options. By doing all the manipulations you have a clear idea what you are doing, you are guided by figures. If you have to change the angle of elevation do not forget in the opposite direction to change the angle of declination. The best way to do so: in the extreme satellite adjusts declination up to the maximum level of the signal back on top of the satellite and also the maximum signal We build elevation. This procedure will need to be done several times. We wish you success and most importantly patience.
