Dish will come today
And my motor should be here tomorrow
Notice my pole was put up by a blind man lol me and so off lol
It should have elevation and latitude scale with setting instructions if your
Latitude is 54.6 line the two arrows up
Just of 55 tried to upload picture of my
Motor but wouldn't load
Dish was delivered
motor here too
tested it on the box and it work
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
working at my new dish and motor to day
near feel of the ladder once or twice
but the dish itself is on the pole
i have moved the dish location
i have it half straight and level now
just need to line it up and wire it up
Got 28.2 for 5mims them I lost it
Will try and get a look tomorrow night
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
I was lucky I could get the ladder in. Did most of the work on top of the oil tank too lol
Health and safety would have a field day lol
Oh once again @linesman66 thank you for the help last week. Really helped loads
Nps was the fixings a good job
yea they where great, really handy
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.
That makes it worse in my head lol
You've spent this long on it, you're almost there now.
what about that video i posted before on this thread?
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
If your dish is aligned properly i use usals to set where sat is to go.
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
Removed the dish on the motor moved it to the middle the best I could
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
