If you are only moving a dish 500, the skew and elevation are already locked in. It should only be necessary to rotate the dish until the signal locks in. This, of course, is true only if both mounting poles are vertical. however if you are moving it to another zip code, all bets are off. How big is your roof? Roofers remove and replace satellite dishes with little difficulty and no equipment.

I use a Birdog, but I am sure your meter is a bit easier to operate than the BD.

Run the top two ports to the LNBF's, and the input at the bottom by itself is an input that powers the meter and LNBF's. Hook this single port up to the line that goes to your receivers.

From there it should be straight forward, just peak the dish so both sides of the meter are at there highest reading.

The keys to maximum signal are a good LNB, dish alignment and a clear path to the satellites. The signal must travel 22,300 miles to your dish... a few feet of height between the ground, rooftop won't make any difference. Not that this was your reason, but I have always found it humorous to see a dish mounted on a pole above a rooftop when there were no obstructions from a ground or rooftop installation. The Accutrac looks impressive. May have to get one for myself!
