    I was told that their web site was birddog.tv but there is nothing there... anyone know their website? I only used this meter once and it was amazing. Anything that I should know before buying? I only install direct tv right now and my big problem is getting the dish tweaked in, but i did it with the birddog in about 45 seconds. Any info appreciated.
    TIA

    An installer friend of mine swears by this meter. Says it's the best paycheck he ever spent.

    Solid Signal sold me mine at what seems to be the going price of $439 + shipping. You can build a configuration file on the Birdog Web site that has just the DirecTV sats and download it to the Birdog.
    Besides the ratcheting 7/16th wrench, my Birdog is the best tool I have in my bag. You just about have to use one to peak a triple-sat dish. My customers experience rain fade only when the storms are so bad they should have the TVs unplugged anyway.
    Using the Birdog and a few alignment tricks, I routinely get 100 percent at the dish, which translates into high 90s on receivers as much as 150' from the dish.

    I have to agree. This is the best meter I have ever had. I highly recommend it.

    Do you mean Perfect-10? They are a distributor and
    carry Birdog I believe. I wanted to include the website
    here but the post-cops got me. Try a lookup on Perfect-10
    in Arkansas. :rolleyes:

    Call Sadoun Satellite Sales at 888-519-9595, we always have the birdog in stock and if you call before 2pm I can usually get it shipped out that day for you. Also i can probably throw some type of little gift in for you, something like a jangfin, headset, or a diseqc switch. The price on the birdog right now is 438 with free shipping. We also carry the sathawk which does the same job as the birdog for 419 with free shipping. If you have any questions just give me a call and ask for Ashley.

    Birdog Pros
    Accurate
    Good Battery life

    Birdog Cons
    Shoddy workmanship (I can not tell you the number of times I have had to pull it apart and put it back together and no I do not abuse it)
    Does not like rain (lets face it, we work in the rain this should be better weather sealed)

    That being said, I have thought about sealing it with silicone but since I have to keep pulling it apart, I don't.
    (And yes, I have had it short out before ever pulling it apart)

    Over all, if I had to bu another, I suppose it would depend on what is available and for what price.
