I use dish as an RV set up, on a tripod, with a hopper 3. Been working great for nearly a year. Then last weekend, I suddenly can’t get a signal regularly or at all. All settings on the dish are good, az, skw, el. I had set up flawlessly many times in the exact location I was last weekend. I brought my dish and receiver home this weekend to mess with it. Again, adjusted the dish for the location, but nothing. When I test the setup, it stays on “check switch status progress” please wait while your network table is updated. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Long go I ceased using the receiver as the meter to aim a dish. A meter gives a much better idea of what is going on. A receiver is too hidden on what is going on. And a Hopper 3 is worse than most.

For a hybrid dish, I am using a Super Buddy 29.
