Basic Satellite Dish Installation Tips

One of the most popular device used for providing effective TV programming services is the satellites dish. That is why almost ninety percent of home owners in the US are now choosing satellite and cable providers to enjoy TV programs. If you have opted to get a satellite TV provider, one problem that you will meet early on is the satellite dish installation

The company where you purchased your dish may offer to send you an installer but of course, it comes with a price. If you included the installation charges in your budget, then you have free reign to employ a technician who could mount your satellite dish.

Knowing some basic tips on how to set up a satellite dish will also not hurt you.  The proper installation consists of two steps:

  • The installation of the satellite dish.
  • The installation of a decoder to pick up the signal from your TV provider.

The first question that you must ask yourself when installing the satellite dish is:  Where should you mount it?

Because it gets its signal from a satellite, the dish must then be placed where it can get a clear unobstructed view of the sky. Avoid putting the dish on a high roof, so that maintenance will be much easier and you will not have a hard time shoving off snow or leaves during bad weather conditions.

After mounting, the next thing you need to do is to fine tune the disc so that it faces the direction where it can receive the strongest signal. To do these, loosen the elevation bolts and then turn the dish around, pausing for a few seconds on each direction.

Check the signal strength screen if you can receive signals ranging from 90-100. Lock the dish on the highest possible signal and finally tighten the bolts.
