I lost my B sattellite 119. I moved the dish to another location and no matter what I do, I cant get a signal. Anyone have any pointers or instructions. Im thinking to start from scratch.

Just from an astronomical standpoint - at 1956 GMT the sun should be at about the same longitude (behind it) as the satellite - sweep the dish up and down with it pointing at the sun at that time and see if it anything appears- - move 1 sun diameter east of the sun every 2 minutes -15 degrees over an hour's time - It's ok to look periodically at the sun despite what you may have heard -just don't do it with binoculars or a telescope.-- ;) just a thought

When I installed mine I had trouble at first. I had to move my dish up a few feet before I got SAT B. SAT B is lower in the sky then the others so something could be blocking SAT B and not the others.
