Moteck SG2100 Motor
The SG2100 DiSEqC motor mount is a low cost unit that lets you move your dish from one satellite to another or across the whole Clarke belt, it can move 70 degrees E and W of your true south position. It was a breeze to set up, if you take the time and care to get the pole or mast as plumb and level as you possibly can an extra five minutes spent here can save you 50 minutes later in the project, the manual is not the greatest but the angles to set the mount and the antenna declination are all included, to assist in the set up there is now

The first time I installed one it took about an hour I now have it down to about fifteen minutes including a scan of the arc. On the whole its the next best thing to a blind search receiver and has saved many trips to the roof to re-point in the middle of winter. Talking about winter, if the dish gets covered in snow I motorize round into the sun and it soon melts off, another trick is to motor the dish to the far East or West when the wind picks up and it lowers the profile of the antenna system. There is also no need to run any more cables to power the motor as it runs off the single RG6 cable that runs from the DiSEqC 1.2 receiver, I have had mine for a year now and would not consider doing without one I still get a kick out of it every time I see my dish tilt and swing to the east and west.

I have one of the SG2100s too.
It's built like a tank, quiet and apparently it's the fastest motor for moving between birds.
I reckon it has to be the easiest motor to set up as it has a button on the motor itself to swing it East or West with a signal meter inline making it a breeze to hit your true South bird.

This will be my first (Newbie) motor install.
I got the mast bolted up this afternoon. I had to elongate the holes a little on the mast to get the arm to plumb and level. Tomorrow I will probably mount the motor and try to get it pointing due S.
So far I think I have about 15 minutes involved in assembly and mounting.
Will let you know how the rest goes.

Motorized dish and G10
I have a motorized SG2100 and I have no trouble finding any satellite overhead. Now this motor is supposed to have horizon to horizon coverage but I can't seem to get G10. When it is pointed in the direction it looks like it is shooting throught the neighbor's fence.
Has anyone been successful with using a motorized dish to get G10? I live in Jacksonville Florida.

Where I live I can motor from 34.5W all the way to 148 (of course, this takes a bathroom break to move that far)Directv Slimline SWM 5 LNB and DirectvWorld dish on the roof of the apartment building...Directv HR34 AKA Genie
