INSTALLING THE MOTOR
I. Traditional Installation:
Attaching the Antenna Dish to the Motor. Make sure it is at the center of the mounting tube. Rotate the motor together with the antenna towards TRUE SOUTH. You can find the TRUE SOUTH via the magnetic variation table and a compass that indicates the MAGNETIC SOUTH.
Adjust the motor elevation angle via the Inclinometer or the Elevation / Latitude scale on both sides of the Motor.
30¢X - DECLINATION ANGLE
II. Quick Installation (A receiver with Goto X Function is recommended):
Rotate the motor together with the antenna towards TRUE SOUTH roughly first
According to the Latitude of your location, set the elevation angle of the motor. There is also a Latitude scale on the other side of the motor.
Mount the Dish onto the motor. The
centerline on the tube of the motor can help to mount the Dish on the center.
According to your Longitude and the
position of the wanted satellite, drive the motor to the right position. For example, a
user in Paris (Longitude is 2.5¢XE) wants to aim the Hot Bird (13¢XE). Just drive the
motor to 10.5¢XE(=13-2.5) via the manual button.
Move the whole unit around the pole to
find the strongest signal from the wanted satellite.
