Anyone who has spent anytime on a hot or cold roof knows the joy of lining up a Sat dish with your wife helping you. In my case its a shouting match from the roof to a open window near the TV using the signal meter on the Sat Recv. NOT GOOD.
So the inexpensive SF95 meter looks like a very good alterative.
I know it is not LAB quality and that there are better meters for more money but for the once every few years, the SF95 should do the trick keeping the wife very happy.
Now my question, can the meter be hooked up thru a MULTI SWITCH., hooking the LNB to one side of the meter and the other side of the meter to the LNB side of the MULTI SWITCH or must the meter be hooked directly to the Recv.
I hope that makes sense.

it will work, but be sure switch matrix is ok and you select that satellite what the LNBF looking;
buy $20 a pair of CB radio and keep the house warm winter time ;)
