Additional Information
Locking on to your satellite signal is now a one-person operation.

Satellite Signal Meter displays signal strength, according to dish position, with an easy-to-read analog needle and audible tone, allowing you to make necessary adjustments without having to yell back and forth from the window. Quickly installs between the satellite dish and receiver and includes a 3', 75 ohm cable for easy hook-up. Meter is powered by satellite receiver, so there's no additional power connection. Works great with #17018 Satellite Heading Compass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you buy the protable dish .. you need this I bought this at the same time I got my dish and stand. This will find the signal perfectly if you learn how to use the meter properly; If you set it to high or to low, you either find stray signals or you'll miss the satellite completely. I started high until the noise was constant the scaled it back slightly until it stopped. Then started looking for the satellite. You'll know you've found it when you can adjust the dial back and forth slightly and the signal with adjust accordingly; and finally, your TV is downloading information from the satellite. Great Product, just be patient and learn to dial it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satellite Finder We have an RV, but we actually bought this satellite finder for home. We recently had some wind storms and our satellite dish's position had changed, so we were having problems with low signal strength. We've tried to reposition the dish in the past using 2-way radios, but we were not successful. We decided to give the satellite finder a try. It works great! We repositioned the dish and now our signal strength is higher than when we had the dish professionally installed. (Perhaps the installer should have used this satellite finder.) We definitely recommend it for your RV or home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satellite Finder Let me tell you if you are thinking of buying this and are having the thoughts of yeah right! Well let me tell you I thought that way too! But I was amazed at how easy it is to setup with this product! I got my azmuth first and then started using this and wow I got a signal then fine tuned it and I went and checked the T.V. and the signal was over 120%!!! I have the tripod mount and have moved it all over the yard for practice and still great signal!! I would say this is the first product you need in your box of stuff for your Satellite system on the road!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job The satellite finder works well for me. The shop that sold me the dish showed me how to use it, but the directions are easy to follow. Have patience! It takes a few tries to get used to it. It's very sensitive because you are focusing on a point in space 22,000 miles away. Since I have HD , I check to make sure I'm getting the correct satellite(119 for Dish Network). I try to preset the elevation and skew and use a compass or other dishes for azimuth. It's then a matter of using the meter to fine tune. The product works fine for me and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satellite Finder This was a first for me. First time at locating satellite and first time I used this product. It was great. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Just kept peaking the signal meter and found the satellite without any problem. My good friend, who has lots of experience with sat television, also thought the sat finder was a smart purchase. I'm glad I ordered mine from Camping World. It would have cost more had I driven across town and purchased it from a local RV dealer. I love Camping World.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta Have One I messed around for two hours trying to get my dish aligned. I got so frustrated that I did not mess with it for a couple of months and decided to buy this product. I looked at the more expensive ones and then decided to give this one a try. It works great. In just a couple of minutes I had the finder whistling away with a great signal. I even moved it around several times and had the same results. Found a signal and watched TV. It was awesome. If you have a dish, you cant be without this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satellite Finder Works Great The satellite finder works great and it is easy to use. It eliminates the need to view the television screen during setup. It helps in zeroing in on the satellite for the strongest signal. Adjust the dish until the satellite finder peaks at 10, adjust the finder to 5 on the scale, readjust the satellite until the finder peaks again at 10, and continue this process until the strongest signal possible is obtained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit At first I could not get it to work. Then I read the directions. I could not get it off of a #1 reading. I turned the sensitivity up to close to 10. I turned it back to 5. From there I just kept letting it max out and turned it back down. When it maxed out and started to drop, I had an excellent signal. I did not have to look at the TV at all.

Do you need a satellite dish or does it just hook up to your tv

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, this product is used in conjunction of a satellite dish and satellite receiver. This <a href=https://youtu.be/4hKFCRYDxr8>video</a> demonstrates a Winegard portable dish and ViP211K receiver with a satellite finder to fine tune pointing of the dish.

Will this work with the Tail-gater?

Asked by: Gary
A satellite finder such as this is best suited for manual models like the MP-1 antenna as opposed to the Tailgater which is an automatic satellite antenna.
