    tuning c band / ku

    ok i got a lot of reading to do .... not sure how to tune both c & ku .... i only had a lnbf in the past...........just finished putting up my 7 1/2 mesh after welding a adaptor into place ....it picks up C band G10 great get the bluegrass music channel at 89% and shows the scrambled channels at 94% & 97 % these are with my coolsat not the 4dtv (not hooked up yet). now i switch the cable to KU and i get something ..... ok can see a promo channel for Super Dish promo at 60% SQ ..... well we did drop the dish when we were setting it up i rechecked everything and my only problem is a bent feedhorn brace 1 of 4 so i will probably have to remove and straighten.... but at least the dish is working......



    more of the saga later

    C & Ku on the same bird are always 2-3 clicks apart for me.

    Hey George,

    If you have the scaler/feed-horn pointed precisely at the center of the dish, have the focal distance set properly, and the f/d ratio set properly, you should be able to tune in on a Ku transponder on your TS satellite, and start peaking from there. Then swing out to a far satellite, and peak a Ku transponder there. Repeat for the center, then swing to the other side. Repeat until you have the best you can get across the arc.

    When I tuned in the old Winegard, that's how I did it. If you get it peaked properly for Ku, generally the C-Band will be fine.

    Course I get to do it all over again three times here in the very near future.

    ok thanks guys , i tuned it to this sat cause it was the satellite the dish was pointed at when i took it down.... its stationary now but has a motor.... but isn't hooked up to the 4dtv yet ... since i never had c band and ku through one dish ...

    DemonLord i didn't try to tune the ku side , i did play at tuning the c band side. its been years since i done any of it so i'm a bit rusty ...

    i got plenty to read and lear a few things
