are we talking analog or digital?

Analog is easy...move the dish until a picture comes in (obviously you have to have the analog box on a channel). Example is G4/G16 TP16 (Shepherd's Chapel)..When I aimed the 6 footer at G4 I tuned up TP16 and started moving the dish in the vicinity. Picture went from fuzzy to clear as I tuned it in.

Digital is harder. You have to be nuts on for a good signal. If you have an analog box the best thing to do is rough the spot with analog then fine tune it in with digital.

The larger the dish, the tighter it's beamwidth= little harder to point but more rock solid signal.

List Sat equipment.
Anything bent that shouldn't be, needs to be replaced / fix.
Photo possible?
