Thread: Repoint EA Dish?
11-01-2012 11:00 PM #7Pub Member / Supporter
Repointing is not all that difficult, once I even moved a wing dish 30 feet to see around a tree and got the signal back without much trouble. Of course knowing that Mrs Volts would be mildly upset if I messed it up gave me incentive.
Making reference marks with a magic marker is a very good idea.
Having a small tv with you on the roof is a Godsend, it lets you get immediate feedback from the point dish screen.
It's better (and easier) to have a gentle hand and make a number of little adjustments rather than try to do it in big jumps. The idea to push on the dish before loostening it is a winner, first you'll see how sensitive it is and second you'll know which direction to go.

Also the signal strength is slightly delayed. So when you move it, move it just a bit and wait a second. Move again and wait a second. Untilled you get it where you need it.It's all about the connectivity!!!
