Elevation Simply means the movement of the dish upward and downward. Today i will be sharing a little trick that you can try out for yourself in other to get the elevation of your satellite degree.

If we can properly set the elevation angle , then the azimuth alignment will be a very simple one to adjust. So the following simple procedures will be helpful for sat installers. If you already know the setup , just ignore it.

1.  Hope we all remember our old school days, this simple device [Protractor]  in your Maths Set.Take it.

2. Take a thread for 20 cm length. Fix the one end on the top[@ the Middle] with sellotape ( see fig.) and add a counter weight on the other end. ( I used a spark plug here as a counter weight)

3.Fix it on the scalar ring surface of the dish antenna with A Gum or sellotape.

4. Move the dish antenna up and down. Now the thread move due to gravity and shows the correct elevation angle. It works 100%.

5. For example, I set the antenna for Thaicom - 5 @ 78.5 E . Now the Thread shows 78 degree accurately.

This type of setup will be very useful for aii Installers. Within 5 to 10 seconds , you can fix the elevation angle correctly. while you Work to get the azimuth.
