    Pointing a 1000.4 western arc dish

    I am trying to point a 1000.4 western arc in the chicago area. I was unable to find the angles. I was able to find the angles for 1000.2 are the the same? I was unable to get signal with these. I also have 2 dpp44 switches in attic so I can hookup 6 boxes. Some legacy some new. Should I run a cable to only 1 box for setup? I have a small signal finder that I using to tune. Had no trouble tuning dish 500 before the dpp44 switches in attic.

    Need to know what number of receivers you are attempting to install.. the settings for a 1000.2 and 1000.4 WA are the same.

    If you are hooking up the DPP44 switches you need to run 3 cables from the dish to the switch.

    Connect meter and point the dish slightly to the SW then SLOWLY move dish Back and forth until you hit a signal. Peak the signal then run a switch test. If you get 119, 110 ,129 in that order you are good to go. if you get 110, X, 119 you are too far to the East.

    Sometimes I miss the old days when we had three channels on the TV. Back then, I went to bed at a decent time.

    Yes I do. I got a signal today but was unable to get all three. I hit 110 and 119 but not 129. I ran a separate cable to dish for pointing. i am going to check my mount and settings.

    you should have 119,110,129 in that order....if 110 is first you are about 10 degrees off...if you have 119,110,xx you may have a obstruction blocking 129.
    the 129 sat is pretty low in the sky....
