Azimuth (Magnetic): is the angle relating to the horizontal positioning of the dish. The angle is expressed in terms of degrees, with North = 0 degrees, South = 180 degrees. Use your compass to aim dish at that angle.

Elevation: is the angle above the horizon, and is also expressed in terms of degrees. This is the angle by which the dish must be "tilted Up or Down" in relation to the theoretical horizon, in order to position it precisely for the desired satellite.

LNBF Skew: It is important to adjust the LNBF skew for stationary dishes.

ODU (Out Door Unit ) Assembly:
Step 1. Insert LNB Arm to the satellite dish.
Step 2. Secure the mounting base either to the wall or floor.
Step 3. Insert the assembled dish and LNB arm into the mounting base.
Step 4. Connect the coaxial cable (RG6) to the LNB.

Loss of Signal/Rain Fade

Rain Fade

* The satellite signal may be lost temporarily due to unusually heavy rainfall. An optimally aligned antenna, along with the shortest possible cable run, minimizes the chances of “rain fade.”
* Make sure the antenna is mounted securely to prevent it from being blown out of alignment in a heavy wind.
* Heavy snow accumulation on the LNB and the antenna may reduce the satellite signal strength; snow should be swept away as soon as possible.
* Tree foliage growth into antenna’s line-of-sight to the satellite may result in gradual loss of picture.
