    Mot DSR922 install question

    I have authorized a Mot DSR922 through WebSams and have received Hits on the Trip Counter from G1-3. In the programming process every sat shows 5000 on the position counter and cannot be changed. I have not been able to pre-adjust the East-West arc limits even after a Master Reset. Every "bump"...

    I can't seem to find the past post that identified the different Chaparrals. If picture1 is a CorotorII, what model is picture2 w/Ku feed near the scalar? A CorotorI?

    Channel Master 1.0M Feed Assy

    I have come across an off-set Channel Master 1.0M composite reflector and mount during my travels. The feedhorn assembly is missing, so I am planning to construct one using 1/2" EMT. Thanks to SatGuys I was able to download the Assembly/Installation Manual, but the needed dimensions are not...

    Satellites outside the Clarke Belt

    Have there been any hobbyist attempts to derive content from the non-equatorial inclined or polar orbit satellites? I am aware the satellites outside the Clarke Belt in recurring orbits will require both elevation and azimuth steering. I have not been able to find a site with info on these sats.

    Mot DSR922 setup

    I haven't been able to commit any of my Buds into the ground yet, but I got the itch to play with my Mot DSR922. I have a confirmed X0 123W signal connected to the Ku port but the manual does not seem to offer ways to force any scans for channels. I suspect current sat maps are needed from G1/G5...

    Adapting DP FSS LNB for FTA

    I am aware bandstacking technology limits the functionality of ex-DN Superdish FSS LNBs for FTA use. Will the use of the DP Adapter which unbandstacks the signal for legacy DN receivers similarly allow FTA receivers to see the proper H and V polarities?

    Point-to-point comm possible?

    Since the ex-DirecWay dishes with modems are transceivers, is it theoretically possible to achieve point-to-point communications with 2 of them pointing at each other? I am not able to find specific info on uplink frequencies from the dish, or how the frequencies are controlled. I suppose the...

    Another Free BUD Extraction

    I answered another craigslist ad for a free satellite system, learned the dish was a 10' perforated Winegard that needed removal from ground level, so I accepted the challenge despite the 250 mile RT. It was in an exclusive gated community, and as a reward for the removal I received a 6-year old...

    Above ground BUD mount

    I have a 9' solid steel panel dish that I don't want to commit into the ground for now. Yet I feel the itch to get started as attempts for C using smaller dishes is not yielding results. Does anyone have any pics or plans for a temporary above ground mount I might be able to construct from...

    Need schematics and info

    I just "inherited" a 9' Laux Beta9 steel panel dish with Houston Trackers 8+ and 10. The Trackers don't power up, but my searches point to power supply problems. I am repair-capable and can reverse-engineer circuits, but any info and schematics will help save time and effort. While I've...
