    Lost 129 because of trees

    Well I bypassed my 1000.2 connecting the new wing dish directly to the receiver and it works. Apparently in my case I am not getting enough current to power up the lnbf on the wing dish when I connect it to the 1000.2 lnb in port. I guess I have one of the power hogs. Time to go back to plan A...

    Satellite elevation compared to antenna elevation

    Hi All, I am setting up a 1000.4 antenna and the elevation needs to be 41 which would be close to the top of a tall tree. Does the satellite actually sit higher in the sky than the 41 degrees the antenna needs to be set to? Thanks, Bill
