Assembly
0. Site survey
1. Connect receiver to tv
2. Navigate to antenna installation screen
3. Select antenna type as 5 LNB Multi-sat
4. Find dish pointing coordinates
5. Level the mast
6. Attach AZ/EL mount to mast
7. Attach LNB Arm to AZ/EL mount
8. Attach dish to LNB arm
9. Insert RG6 cable through arm to switch and 3' cable
10. Secure LNBs

Tilt: Set tilt and loosely tighten tilt nuts
Elevation : Set elevation and tighten left side only as viewed from rear of the dish
Azimuth: Set azimuth

Coarse Alignment
1. Azimuth: Rotate dish around mast until peak is obtained and lock mast clamp bolts
2. Elevation: Adjust fine elevation screw for max signal (Record)
3. Verify reception of DTV 101 satellite with meter or use receiver

Fine-tuning
1. Tilt: Set in-line signal meter for 119 RHCP reception (13 volts with 22 KHz tone)
Alternative: Select 119 satellite and odd numbered transponder on receiver
Loosen lockdown and rotate dish to peak the 119 signal and then tighten lockdown
2. Elevation: Set in-line signal for 101 RHCP reception (13 volts with no 22 KHz tone)
Set dial to 0, rotate elevation 2 turns counter-clockwise, record level, then rotate clockwise counting turns until reciprocal signal
Divide by 2 and move back that amount counter-clockwise and tighten elevation lockdown
3. Azimuth: Ensure azimuth lockdown bolts are slightly loosened
Set the in-line signal meter for 101 RHCP (13 volts with no 22 KHz tone)
Set dial to 0, rotate azimuth 3 turns counter-clockwise, record level, then rotate clockwise counting turns until reciprocal signal
Divide by 2 and move back that amount counter-clockwise and tighten azimuth lockdown
