Sat finder or spectrum analyzer?

Hello all.
It's my first post and i'm new on satellite universe.

I'm close to buy a system to have movil internet, moving all days to work with.

In my country ( Uruguay) the only seller of products and satelite services is Antel ( national telephone enterprise), they have an agreement with Hispasat satelites, so no choice.

In Hispasat manuals of dish instalations they use spectrums analyzars to point the dish, so the seller here advice to me that the sat finders are not sure tools, "you can think you are wright but you are pointing another close satelite, not yours".

I would like to know if this is true, because may be i need to build more than one satellite unit, and it will turn very expensive if it's the case.

Can i find a very reliable sat finder, or no way? witch brand and model?

Thanks for your opinions.

I'm obviously unfamiliar with Uruguayan restrictions. As do these folks http://www.vsat-systems.com and http://www.skycasters.com You might also check with Hughes: http://www.hughes.com

Now, the analyzer versus meter question. Given unlimited funds, I'd take a spectrum analyzer any day. But they're extremely expensive compared to the much less complicated signal meters. At this point, I believe it's more important to select a provider, then find out what type signal meter is appropriate at that point.
