    Latitude is 54.6 line the two arrows up

    motor here too

    tested it on the box and it work

    but ...

    when your on the box and you go to a different sat, it doesnt line up with numbers on the motor
    and the one i went for has a wee lcd screen on it and you can go move the dish manually to get it spot on

    It can be tricky enough When i put the
    1.2m dish up I used my harness from
    work was able to belt onto the ladder
    and free both hands Tied the dish onto a rope and pulled it up made it easier Its
    getting the position on the ladder right

    So I need help with the lining up

    The side of my motor says latitude, so mine lat is 54, so I put the motor to 54?

    What angel should the dish be at ?

    What is this declination angel?

    All over my head

    Any help would be great

    I had Thor there at about 80 odd % but only had a few sats around it
    So is that too high or low

    A manual should have come with your motor, use the table that comes with it for the angle.

    Lol not sure about that

    On my box when I went to 19 I was getting 28 and when I moved 28 to that place it wouldn’t pick it up

    Silly thing lol

    that sounds almost [ I say almost ] like you moved the dish on the motor, and not the motor on the pole, and couldnt get 28 as the elevation was out

    That’s me done for the night
    Didn’t get any where

    Need a clear head and a few hours to work at it


    I set the motor to 54, it says lat on the box not elevation
    I set the dish to 27
    And nothing

    Removed the dish on the motor moved it to the middle the best I could
    Nothing

    Pointed the motor to south and Thor and nothing much really


    I notice when I put the motor to say 28 it won’t go there it will go past it say 37
    As my motor has a lcd on it showing where it’s pointed
    So don’t know why it’s so off
