5.0 out of 5 stars Useful once you know the correct procedure..., 29 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Konig Satfinder Satellite Installation Tool (Electronics)
I had some trouble aligning my dish at first; mostly due to holding a compass, a wrench, myself and my dish, all at the top of a ladder.
After a couple of false starts, some swearing and a near-death experience I took to the internet to find a better way.
I live in Hampshire, England and the procedure that got me results was thus:

0. Attach Konig satellite finder.
1. point dish due east (horizontal adjustment) and vaguely into the sky (vertical adjustment)
2. Turn dish slowly southwards until satellite finder beeps.
3. Turn down the gain until the satellite finder needle is on/around the 5db mark.
4. Turn dish slowly backwards and forwards in the horizontal plane until you find the strongest signal.
5. Tighten the horizontal adjustment.
6. Repeat step 4 but adjust the dish in the vertical plane.

Takes about 5 minutes to do it properly this way and my signal strength (as measured on my Humax FoxSat PVR) is 95%.

So with the right technique this little gadget did the job perfectly. I only hope that when the time comes for a repeat (the dish has been up for a few years now) I can find it again in all my junk.

Excellent review and tutorial - thank you sir.
I would like to add that the vertical adjustment referred to in step one can be checked on dishpointer.com; and for most of UK this is around 20 - 25 degrees.
