    Digital Satellite Meter ... Does anyone know how to use the SF-500A pics below

    Hi all ,

    I bought an SF-500A Digital Satellite Finder to help align my dish a few years ago and just couldn't get the thing to work properly. Mainly because the pre-installed satellites within the finder are not for this country ...

    I can enter my own details for Astra 28.2e but I cant get hold of the information on the net anywhere. Either that or I'm not recognising the data when it is presented ...

    This Sat finder has two screens of information to input to set up a satellite ... Pics Below



    Could anyone help me out and let me know the figures for :
    LO Freq
    22k (On or Off)
    Down Frequency
    Symbol Rate
    Polarity

    I presume you pick on one channel on Astra 28.2 and input the figures for that and hopefully all the rest will be fine ???

    Please help ...

    Thanks in advance

    YNA

    P.S The figures you see inserted are my efforts from the net for BBC London and not built into the sat finder ...

    Hi I never understand why people need a satellite meter anyway. I have installed many dishes over the years without a meter. I just use a small tv attached to the receiver and the dish. Then you just select a free channel like Channel 4 on 28.2 east. Move the dish slowly left and right until you get a picture then tighten dish up. If you use a meter you still have to move the dish to pick up the signal..... Regards
