I don't know if this should be a new thread or a continuation of this one.
Here goes, got a new dish pole for the 1M free dish...As mentioned earlier on this thread, I am still having problems with the dish/motor setup for pointing and receiving any signal from any satellite(s).
The dish elevation bracket and degrees indicator are clearly marked but cannot get to pinpoint or locate any satellites.
After installing the dish on the perfectly plumbed pole, LOL!!. I use two instruments, a "Digital Angle Gauge" and a "Pitch and Slope Locator" fancy word for an angle indicator while pointing to Galaxy 28 89.00W......Here is what was noticed, placing the instruments on the back of the dish at the LNBF arm holder as well next to the LNBF ( both sides of the "J" curve) , the edge of the dish elevation indicator falls at the 60 degrees mark on the bracket while reading the required elevation setting of 54.70 degrees on both instruments as per dispointer and SatelliteAV install location, for my area.
Why doesn't the bracket elevation numbers match the instruments elevation angle readings....Are the dish elevation bracket stamped marking wrong and way of by as much of 3+ degrees?
Any advice or suggestion is greatly appreciated.
