Ok, first off I know I’m in over my head, after all it wasn’t but a handful of months ago that James explained the difference between the Ka band and the Ku band to me. However, as I’m trying to understand all of this fun stuff I’ve stumbled across something that I just can’t figure out, and know there are plenty of experts on here that can provide assistance. So here it goes… A friend recently purchased a digital satellite meter that helps locate signals from various satellites. I believe the sole purpose of the meter is to help with installing and aligning dishes. Despite not having any of these needs, I found the meter fascinating, and he has allowed me to hang onto it, and play around with it, for the weekend. This is where the problems begin, lol. The meter requires the user to enter various parameters. Specifically: 1) The frequency of the interested transponder, 2) The polarity of the transponder (two options are 13 V/Odd/Right/Vertical, or 18V/Even/Left/Horizontal), 3) The baud rate, and 4) The local oscillator frequency. The user can then toggle the 22 khz signal on and off to switch between LNBs. The instructions say that the meter will only work on the Ku and Ka(high) bands, and not the Ka(low) band because it can only tune between 950Mhz and 2150Mhz. While attempting to find the required information online, I have come across a few websites that have everything needed for the Ku satellites. For example, TP1 on DTV’s 101W lists the following information: 12224, Odd, 20000, and 11250 (respectively to the above 1-4). TP2 is listed as 12239, Even, 20000, and 11250. The above parameters work really well! When I punch them in and connect it to my dish’s multiswitch it shows me all sorts of cool information such as signal strength, bit error rate, signal to noise ratio, etc. Ok, so the problem? Well, I can’t find a single piece of data for the Ka(high) band. Where do I go to find these parameters for the DTV’s Ka(high) satellites?
