    ive just brought a satlink ws-6906 device, replacing my older satlink device which couldnt pick up digital signals.
    With the old satlink device i use it to just find sweet spot for high quality and signals when installing antennas.
    Ended up purchasing this newer satlink ws-6906 thinking it could do the same thing but it seems its only for satellite installations..
    So my question is, am i able to config it to just pick up and show me the best position for signal and quality on a ‘free to air’ antenna only?

    Any help would be great !
    Thx

    Seems to me you're out of luck when buying Sat-link devices ... no one does support FTA Arial 8VSB signals;
    if you're really looking for local FTA stations in VHF/UHF freqs...

    Thx for the quick reply..

    that’s unfortunate and guess ive shouldve looked carefuly before purchasing it

    The vhf/uhf device are useful when i wire up new homes not having to go up and down the roof and not having to re-tune everyones tv, which saves heaps of time...

    I dont have a clue regarding satellite tv so not sure wat im gonna do with the new purchase, but appreciate the reply..
