    Hey guys it's been awhile since I've had to do this but it looks like it's getting time for me to have to re-peak my dish. I have a 5lnb dish. Do I recall it's 99 (c) as the main satelite which normally ends up also aligning with the others at the same time when you max the signal strength up??? This gets tricky to remember which satelite to go by now that you have several listings on the signal strength screen for 99. I was going to have to remember this anyways because it looks like soon I'll be changing my lnb over to a SWM lnb. Thanks ahead of time

    Don't "peek", but peaking is done on either 99c or one of the 103c (a or b). These are the national and the narrowest beams.

    "Actually" that is only good for the tilt and wouldn't get you even close for the Ka SATs.
