What kind of meter are you using? Does it identify what satellite you're hitting?

When you're getting 18 is the receiver locking in saying it is 119? Because if you're able to pick up 110 by changing the azimuth then your elevation is probably to high. Get the dish to the point where you're locking in on 119 and lock down then clamp bolts to the pipe. Then adjust the elevation and see if you can get it higher.

It is a cheap one. No it does not tell me what sat I am on. Yes when I get the 18 the receiver says it is locked on to 119. I will just keep working with it. I was thinking I did not have something on the receiver set up correctly.
