    Really if your mount is plumb then by putting you dish to 0.8w and peaking the signal on that one satellite then all the rest should fall into line. When I set a motorised up I use a transponder of aljazeer English and use the nit function to show me the signal strength on that channel by peaking the dish left right of up and down to get the best signal strength then the rest of the sats should be in line and peaked. There are many things that meter can do but I just use it for the bare minimum but it works good for chasing those difficult sats and peaking the signal.

    @ FOZZER----Why ask the same question as you have previously asked and received assistance with already.
    Have I and others just wasted our time helping you?
    People come to this site for help, they get it and are grateful but you seem to be just playing a game. I spent time in "conversations" with you and now find the same question again.
    What a total waste of time.
