    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    That's what I thought might work, but I didn't want to advise that without asking here first.

    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    I sold a few of these on eBay, and one of the buyers says his dish runs the opposite direction of what the box is telling it to do (goes E when calling for W.) He says that his old box (part of an old receiver) works correctly. Would fixing this this be as simple as reversing a couple of...

    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    So I think I fixed the sticky button unit. When I took the control board out, the button would work a few times, and then stick again. I noticed that if I left the screws that hold the control board to the cover a little loose, the button would continue to work with no problem. So I added...

    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    I also got a chance to test these boxes with the motor drive arm that I have on hand, and made a video of it. I tested all 6 boxes, and 5 of them work great. One had a sticky button that I think I can fix, but I'll post up more about it after I try something tomorrow.

    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    I think I saw an old thread where people were looking for the owner's manual, so I scanned one in and made it in to a .pdf Feel free to download this and share it as needed.

    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    Here's a picture of the remote. It looks like I have 4 new ones, one new one that's marked "one button stuck on front panel" and the one that had been opened and used for something that had the really corroded batteries in the remote. It also looks like the controllers were bought in 1999 like...

    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    I believe it's a 24" based on what's on the box. How would I measure it to be sure? Is it something I could test to be sure it works by hooking it up to one of the controllers? The UST's have the remotes. The one open box remote had batteries so corroded I could hardly get the cover off, but...

    Uniden UST300 Actuator Controllers

    So quick background. My dad was a one man band c-band dealer/installer in the mid to late 1980s in the upstate SC area. I spent many evenings doing homework sitting in a lawn chair in someone's yard while my dad dug a hole for a big pipe, or helping him and my mom put together a dish. On...

    Phone line Question

    That's a good question... maybe Alaska or Hawaii - can't think of any local NFL teams there... :D Might do that this season... my local Fox channel on the dish is horrible... both video and audio quality are terrible.

    Walk Down Memory Lane

    I think he last used it in 2000 - had to get Fox News during the elections. His impression was that the programming was limited and not price competitive vs. DirecTV. Then in 2003 he had a stroke that left him 90% blind, so maintaining the system would be impossible at this point. For the...

    Walk Down Memory Lane

    This is a cool site! I found it looking for some info about setting my my DTV system, but stumbled on this C-Band forum. My dad was actually a C-Band dealer back in the late 80's in the Spartanburg SC area. I helped put in lots of systems... their back yard still houses a BUD, but it's no...

    Multi-Satellite Installation Problems

    Grant, I just joined this forum to post a reply... I spent about 10 hours over the last two days with that same issue! I moved my dish to a new house... decided to put it up out of the way on the chimney. The only signal I could find seemed to be about 20 degrees to the left of all of...
