Today I tried to use my Birdog to aim an Invacom SNH-031 LNBF but i couldnt pick anything up. my analog meter found all kinds of signals. Why can't the DOG find a bird?????

Should work fine, my positive ID satellite meter works with Ku, DBS and C-Band signals.

The Linear outputs of the QPH-031 are standard with the L.O. being 10750
(22Khz off)

If you have never used this meter for Ku signals you will find these signals are a lot harder to find than DBS satellites!

i switched lnbs with an old Direct lnb, found the 110, changed lnb, and it didn't read it. Bad LNB?????

110ºw is a circular polarized satellite, you would have to move the dish to another satellite (Linear) and change to a linear satellite on the Birdog.

What satellite are you aiming for?
