I bought a used 10-foot mesh dish, added a new C/KU band LNBF, set my elevation for my area according to Dishponter.com and have my tv and FTA receiver (Manhattan 1933, with channels preloaded) out at dish. I have tried tuning to a channel on my true south Satellite and then rotating the dish by hand on the polar mount to see if I "bump," into the channel. I can't get any signal on either the C or Ku side. Is there a better way to find the first signal? Should I use a signal meter first and forget about TV for now? My angle finder shows that my elevation and declination are set right according to the Dishpointer.com info, and I have checked the FD length to the LNBF and it is correct for the dish. The LNBF is set at the right skew angel as well for my true south satellite. I must be missing something stupid simple somewhere. Should I put the dish at the True South satellite and adjust the elevation up/down to hunt for the signal? I have a clear view of the southern sky and there are no trees blocking the satellite dish. Stumped! Any helpful hints would be great. Thanks.
