welcome :wave from another Minnesotan (SW suburbs of Minneapolis)

I checked your zip and it looks like your true south is Galaxy 3C at 95 (your longitude is 95.4)

What I would do first is take the motor off and try and get G3 with the fixed dish. Use one of the "L" ports on the LNB
The dish for fixed dish is at
35.5 elevation
179.5 (pretty much straight south)
skew leave at 0 (stright up and down)

Go into the programming of the box and select Galaxy 3C
The LNB LO needs to be standard and 10750
Go down to the list of frequencies and such and find the following

freq-11780
polarity-H
symbol rate-20760

Thats CCTV and is VERY strong. Once you get that locked in then you know where to aim the dish. I havent worked with a STAB motor so I don't know exactly what the settings are (sorry about that)

Telstar 5 97.0W 182.2 179.1 35.4 1.5
