Definition of PLUMB
: a lead weight attached to a line and used to indicate a vertical direction
— out of plumb or off plumb
: out of vertical or true

Level  : a device for establishing a horizontal line or plane by means of a bubble in a liquid that shows adjustment to the horizontal by movement to the center of a slightly bowed glass tube

 

For those of you who don't know the difference.

Except some levels have bubbles to check vertical for plumb.

 

I really doubt you're dropping a plumbline to check you dish installation.

So you are saying that a mast can't be level and plumb, yes?

It might be time to move on from the level & plumb discussion.

We've made our jokes and I think everyone knows what was meant.

...

 

That's the way my level is,

 

In fact it has three bubbles for horizontal, vertical, and 45 degree diagonal. :) 

 

But as you say, :backtotop 

 

I wonder what progress the TS has made on finally getting that PIII dish aligned for his RV?

the mast might have a "bubble" which you use to level and plum the mast….

Not sure why you're making this so hard.

 

To use a "level" to check plumb:

Exactly, you are using the level to plumb the mast.  that is what I have been saying.  don't know what you keep saying differently.  When I said "plumb" I meant to make straight the vertical direction. and by leveling, is to make straight the horizontal direction

I was just giving you a hard time for saying "level and plumb" since it can't be. I get your point though.

You say you have an older 3 lnb 18x20, this dish does not recieve the HD channels. It also aligns on the 101 sat. As has been stated, with this dish, you will not recieve any signal with the H25 reciever. If you have a D10, D12, or R16, R22, then you can use this dish and recieve ONLY SD programing. Also, what kind of meter are you using? If you paid less then $60.00 for it, it is worthless for finding the CORRECT sat. Good luck

The 3 LNBF 18" x 20" dish (Phase III) actually aligns to the 110 sat. longitude position. The 101 and 119 slots are then received ± 9° in azimuth off-axis from there. Ideally at least.
You peak the 101 and the other 2 fall inline
