Well I did the receiver method. Thought I could clear em.
Gonna have to go on the roof of the house with a non pen. Not sure I want to do that.
Can only pull 20-32% on the channel master 1 meter.
The tree is large. My smaller KU dish hits it fine but its also sitting back north 30 feet and 10 more feet of the ground. It clears it all.
I'll try messing around with it some more but I am pretty sure the tree is in the way.
Magic Static what size dish are you using and what are you getting percentage on 12155?
Can't afford one of those fancy meters myself. Have an old VGA LCD monitor and using a composite to VGA converter from Monoprice, I take it along with my receiver and peak away. Since I no longer had any small CRT sets and did not want to purchase a small LCD TV, the VGA monitor and the converter which was dirt cheap made sense. This setup works quite well and everything is light weight. Don't foresee dragging a 40" HD set outside to fine tune dishes anytime soon! .
