    We need to add a 110/119 kit on a 1.2m dish to an MDU MFH2 installation. Currently have a 99/101/103 dish working great. We can find no information on how to aim the second dish with the 110/119 kit. We are located in Atlanta. We have an AIM meter. Any help on the settings for aiming this as well as how to dial it in with the AIM meter would be greatly appreciated.

    Once the 110/119 companion dish is properly hooked into the 99, 101, 103 one, you should be able to treat the entire two dish assembly like the equivalent of a Slimline-5 with a conventional (non-SWiM) 4 output LNBF.

    So you can hook the AIM to any of the four coax runs leading to the SWiM multiswitch and set it for aiming a conventional SL-5 and skip to the procedure for aligning the LNB's 119 position. Then go to dishpointer.com, put in your location or zip code, then below select "Multi-LNB Setups" and in the drop-down box select "110 & 119" and align the companion dish to those coordinates and tilt, peaking the signal level on the AIM in the process.

    Should work.
