im curious (and maybe this needs to be in a thread of its own) how all of you other dish users who have to MANUALLY aim your dish accomplish this?? what is your preferred method, tools, steps, and equipment??
my last outing took me 45 dang minutes to get a lock!! i really dont want to drop 400$ on a tailgaiter which i would only use maybe 5 times a year, and i already have 7 dish boxes for my home, and a tripod setup with triple lnb dish hd....
personally i set up/level tripod, hook up all the wires, use the dish box menu to get the angles (azimuth, elevation, skew)...set the skew and elevation based on the numbers on the dish bracket, and use my phone compass to point the azimuth....
this last trip, i kept getting a lock on the 129 sat but not the 119....i ended up covering the two outside lnb with foil and used the center one to peak 119, on transponder 11.....but it was harder than normal to get good signal....
what method and equip do you other guys use to get fastest signal aquisition???
teach me a new trick or two!! LOL
