I seen a few posts on this but nothing since 2009. I am looking for a signal meter that I can use to dither DIRECTV dishes both SWIM and non SWIM for under $250. Does any one have any recommendations? It doesn't have to be new either, used is perfectly fine.

LOL, I have suggested to several 'official' D* and E* install techs that leaving their meter behind accidentally would be GREAT !!!

They just laugh.
