    I bought brand new AIM meter from Solid Signal (updated to latest 4.2) and was able to align the dish, I was able to perform most of the test but one the IN LINE TEST to see how much power I am getting at different points in my system. I was connecting AIM meter in series with line. eg. If I wanted to perform Line test from ODU to POlarity Locker I connect my aim meter odu f connector to cable coming from ODU and IRD F connected to cable going to Polarity Locker. It does not show any voltage or anything every thing is 0

    Is my Meter not working properly? or I am making any mistake.

    Did you redo setup to match situation you are trying to test?
    Also from your other thread, be very careful testing anything on the downside of your DSWM13 as the high output of the DSWM13 will fry the AIM meter without a 10dB attenuator
