I was outside yesturday trying to set up a fixed dish I have to maybe hit G10R although very low on the horizon but I must try.When I heard a voice say "can't get a signal on the other one", well I was on the roof and replied to him as he was foolin with flowwers in his yard,. I said no that one is fine but those trees are blocking my view of another satellite. He went off mumbling and shaking his head.I guess I woun't be able to begin to explain FTA to him.
Pretty Good Guy Though.

If I'm not mistaken, isnt it like 5 degree elevation for you?

Have you thought of mounting the dish upside down? I know that worked for me when I was working with a <15 elevation :)

PSB had a picture of an upside down dish he worked on a while back. Military does that too when the elevation is low

Yep
thats 5 deg alright and I did hear about doing that mounting i upside down as a matter of fact I believe I seen a commercial 1.8M type done like that today as the LNB support arm and and support arm bars were on the top.
I guess either way that dish is not going to fill with water.

So Pete
would it be better to try and find the satellite with the dish right side up first if I can tilt it far enough and the set it up the other way after?
