I'm fine-tuning satellite locations. Several birds east of 95 deg W. L. are hard to spot and I'm trying to program the Diseqc 1.2 positions in for them.
The TP's in the receivers' default lists seem correct but they aren't always strong ones.
I may also have to slightly nudge the motor axis to improve the 61.0 and 61.5 slots but that's a low priority. I do get 61.5 with a Q of 15 on one TP so it isn't far off, perhaps 1 degree on the motor axis.
USALS is only exact if your true South setting is exact. Mine is probably within 1 degree but that's not close enough on a weak signal.
IA13, G10R, IA5, G3C are the satellites of greatest interest, and THEY are solidly in and programmed.
So is SatMex 5, but 12080 on it "ain't happening" in Seattle on a 36" dish!
Having a known strong TP on each satellite would help frustrated newbies find the correct (or desired) satellite(s) easier.
In my case a bent dish was causing a lot of grief at first. Known strong TP's help tell you where you are and help you get the kinks out of your system before tearing your hair out on a weak satellite or a motor setup. (I avoided that but I was suffering from "satellite confusion" for a while.)
Also the receiver manual for the Buzz S2010f is not so good. I thought "go to reference position" meant for the motor to go to 0 degrees (exact South.) No. It goes to the stored satellite position for that selected satellite. I found that out the hard way.
I now have AMC 4, it was quite easy with a known TP signal (3ABN.) No tweals except motor nudges from the receiver were required.
Telecaribe is on a strong TP. here in MN. Thats the problem signals differ around the country. I know I keep a list of the best TP. to use for each bird. Don't use it often as all the satellites I have ever need have been in my positive ID satellite meter.
