A little help with eastern arc on 1000.4

1224 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  scooper
I am trying to get the eastern arc on a 1000.4. I am in 293 zip code area

I am only getting 61.5 on lnb 2 right now with about a 65 signal quality

Elevation is at 45 and skew is 77.

Can anyone give me specific instructions from here

I had 72.7 yesterday on lnb 1 with elevation at 48 and skew the same and just a couple notches east on azimuth

I know they are supposed to be 72.7, 77 and 61.5 in that order

cover the lnbs for 72.7 and 77 with aluminum foil and align on the 61.5. Remove foil and peak all sats if necessary.
I tried that first but couldn't get locked on 61.5, so I covered lnb 1 and 3 trying to lock onto 72.7 but got 61.5 instead and ran out of daylight. so wanted to try with some new knowledge tomorrow
so if I am getting 61.5 on lnb 2 now and want to get it on lnb 3 which way to rotate dish and about how much. and go up on elevation to about 47 or so. What about skew?
Thanks I'll give it a try again tomorrow
