After following instructions for aiming, all I can get is satellite 101A. It gives good readings on transponders 25-32. Except for transponder 23, there are no other readings at all. I cannot get any readings on Satellites 119(b),110(c) or any other satellites. The receiver is saying it cannot find any signals. Could I have a defective LNB? or tracking someone else satellite?
Thanks for any help. Jim

you are pointed at the 119. you need to move the dish 9 degrees,to left or right depending where you are lcoated

Actually, move the dish about 20º to the east. You're aimed at 119ºW, but need to be aimed at 101ºW.

Right litzdog, I guess I have to go back to math class... lol

No, nhvsatellite .... mostly just rotate towards the east. Elevation (up/down) adjustment is probably pretty close.

Depending on location it can be very different: Elevations Per Super Buddy29 Meter:
ZIP 101 Sat 119 Sat
06796.. Cornwall, CT(me) 33.9 23.1 TILT 62.2 101 is 10.8 Higher
94080 San Fran CA 42.2 47.3 TILT 115 101 is 5.1 lower
98101 Seattle, WA (you) 31.8 35.5 TILT 93 101 is 3.7 lower
Not knowing Canyon's Zip code we can't know if elevation need adjusting, but one thing is for sure, if the TILT is 90, the elevation is THE SAME.

I now get good signals on Sat 101 and 119. Nothing on 99(c), 99(s), 103(s) or 103(cb). 3 low signals on 103(ca) zero on rest.
My zip: 92587
Any ideas? I am thinking maybe the tilt but do not want to change anything for fear of losing what I have. Pretty good pictures on most but not all channels.

What is your reading on the sats that you are getting?
03-23-2014 1:16 PM
looks like you need a little bit of fine tuning

Canyon your settings should be
Az 140 El 47 tilt 113
Make sure your mounting is level
And plum sounds like tilt may be off
