In attempting to come up with a plan to install my FTA KU setup. I need guidance in figuring out where to put my pole. Primarily at the moment to figure out how much coax to order for installation. It appears that it could be minimum of 75ft or maybe as much as 150 ft. Preferably order all needed things at one time to save shipping. Last fall the week after satellites and sun were following same arc I attempted to follow the sun with my thumb as somebody on the site had suggested. It appeared that 125W would not be assessable from being behind trees, and all satellites from 30W would be available. Now when I get down to hard figuring I find dishpointer pictures from sight small and not quite at the same angle, as I would picture them. If I get farther from the house and back I could loose 30W unless I start topping fruit trees and topping pine trees. I have used a compass and it shows about the same place as dishpointer for 125W. I used the Site Check Tool, Satellite Elevation Finder for aligning satellites from the Glorystar site, with it I show 125W accessible above top of tree. I put a straw on the same device and end up with the top of trees showing inside the straw. Site Check Tool, Satellite Elevation Finder Page 40 http://www.glorystar.tv/portal/11/documents/GloryTwinMercV6_ENG.pdf I would like to do the range from at least 30W to 125W. I would like to do this job of pole and coax installation once. I would like to order my coax with everything else to save on shipping. Not aware of any good coax locally. The D system was here, seemed the copper clad ends were always rusting off. At the moment still doing the best I can to use the sight checker for the moon. http://gjullien.fr/satellite.htm Don’t see any way to print it out. Is there a way to print it out? I don’t see anything that it indicates it is accurate. There is not any listing for azimuth (magn) 246.1, 237.5 (true), or Elevation 25.1 for 125W, if I did it correctly. I have noticed someone posted following the moon with the Naval charts. I believe the one I found was for 11:40AM, so that would not work. I’ve been working on this for several weeks and it is starting to get frustrating. Seems like somebody had suggested installing a KU satellite without motor, use a support of some kind to keep the dish from dropping down the pole. Was it a muffler clamp or something else? Thoughts and ideas? Thanks!
