Problems with DW6000 - Africa

HI all,
I have a DW6000, with HUGHES Prodelin 1.2m dish Ku - BAND Rx/Tx Series 1134.
I'm trying to do the pointing myself; I used some software dish pointing calculator to get the right azimuth, elevation, and polarization.
I think I did everything right, but after all I couldn’t get a signal above 18%!!!
I contacted my suppliers, and they said that too much time elapsed from the date my Vsats shipped until I received them, and now they became obsolete!
Recently my suppliers sent me a new BUC and IDirect 3000 router as a replacement, and still luck with this!!
I also find it so hard to use the (I site) antenna pointing software.

So …my questions are:

1- Does these kind of replacements usually works ?
2- Can I still use the old BUC and DW6000 to try finding better signal?

- Any other suggestions?

Thanks a lot

I have just written a page about setting up a 1.2m Ku band dish in Darfur to work to PAS10 with iDirect service.   


If anyone knows who actually operates the iDirect hub and where it is located and the outlink carrier frequency, please say.

Best regards, Eric.
