Below one of the installations we did this week, location is at finca in Mallorca, Balearen Islands, Spain.


The dish on the left (Channel Master Elliptical) is pointed at Eurobird3 and connected to a Tooway Ku system.

Dish on the right is a Freesat  (www.freesat.co.uk) 165 cm dish pointer at Astra 2A for free-to-air TV channels.


As you can see on the photos and pointing info, Eurobird3 and Astra 2A are very close to each other and can be very confusing if you dont use a proper satellite finder (showing satellite ID info). In both cases you could have a strong signal on your satellite finder but you are poiting at the wrong satellite.


Pointing info Eurobird3.
