There are different techneques and methods employed by different experts according to their experience to track and lock on to a satellite signel (Signel meters, Motorised trackers etc). Why dont we all share our expertise? Most of the information many might already know.
But do kindly share for the sake of us Noobs!
I will start by sharing how i track a satellite signal:
I use Zenega cd1006s STB to track satellite signals. Zenega STB has an inbuilt sound tracker which will increase or decrease in sound pitch when a signal grows in strength or decreases. Very convenient in tracking signals, if your TV is downstairs and dish on the rooftop. After i have found a signal i will connect the cable to my Beetel STB and scan the TP. This techneque works for both C-Band and KU band signals.
That's good idea and much useful for newbies.Nice thread for them and us.
