PROCEDURE for Using Satellite Meter
Connect the meter lead from the Satellite LNB to the "To LNB" Connection on the satellite finder
Connect the satellite cable coming from the satellite receiver toh teh "To Rec" input on the satellite finder
Make sure your satellite receiver is on. The satellite Meter LED should be on (powered by the satellite receiver) and give a reading of around 2.
Set the satellite dish to roughly the correct angle and direction e.g. Astra 2 satellite is found at 21 degrees elevation and 141 degrees on the compass (slight variation depending on what part of Ireland you are in).
Set the satellite finder's scale to reading to about 5 by adjusting the control level found on the face of the satellite dish (clockwise turning with increase the reading)
Peak the signal by slowly turning the elevation and direction of the dish. If the satellite meter reading tops the scale reduce the reading to 5 (by adjusting the level control) and continue to adjust until peak position is found.
Verify on the satellite receiver that you have tuned the satellite dish to the correct satellite by switching to / tuning in a channel e.g. BBC 1 on the Astra 2 satellite.
Remove the meter lead and satellite finder and connect the LNB to the satellite cable coming from your dish.
