    if you check the top of any lnb it
    has markings, which are actually degrees,
    from that you can go left 10 degrees or right 20 degrees,
    that is what is called tilt - off the centre, for the centre is zero.

    Hi there,
    This is called LNB Skew,
    When you set the skew (Polarity) on your LNBF you are lining up your dish exactly to the same horizontal/vertical position as the satellite in the sky. The satellites all lie in a curve in the sky (Clarke Belt ) and are at different elevations. Ku satellites use Horizontal and Vertical linear polarization and so the skew has to match the (H/V) position of the satellite for optimum satellite signal strength/quality.


    Regards,
    DM500S, FortecStar Alpha, Lifetime Ultra, Lifetime Classic:
    Intelsat 7/10, TelStar 12 and NSS 7

    Time spent on Reconnaissance is seldom wasted.

    In most cases the tilt would be more than the markings

    Skew really depends on the angle of the satellite. most are set on zero degrees, The Optus birds require a couple of degree's off-set, [to the left] and Intelsat 701 requires off-set in the opposite direction. This applies to KU fixed or motech driven dishes.
