How can a mast be level AND plumb?
By using a level to plumb it of course. !rolling
To make life simple, set the receiver to 18" dish and multiswitch to do your initial aiming. It "sounds" like you are selecting a HD dish setup. Setting it to the 18" will only provide you with the 101 satellite. Once you have it aimed, then you can find the correct setup for your dish. Its been a long time since I installed a phase 3. If you are in an RV, the locals on 119 wont be needed anyway, and there is nothing on 110, so you could just leave it on 18" round/multiswitch.
Or if it had a 90° bend in it!
Well, it could be just plumb level!
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.
You got it plumb right!
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?
No, everybody else is.
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.
I was with you up until you posted the definitions, where it seemed to go sideways. "I know you knew...."
