I am trying to aim a new dual dish. I never have this much trouble, but his one is killing me. I can hit echostar 110 west then I hit one with unknown name? What sat is this. How far away am I from nimiq at 91?

Rotate approx 1/4" on the Mast to the Left, when stood behind it, then up slightly.

What sat am I hitting at unknown? I have been up down and around and for reason I can't hit it. I can hit 110 and unknown no problem, but not 91 or 82. Too late tonight. I will try again next nice day, maybe tomorrow. I am try to add new dish with dual for HD. Still have my single working fine.

Not sure.

There was a problem some time ago with a whole lot of Bell 5900's & 6131's that would not register the Nimiq 91 bird, until you had done a Check Switch or two.

I have a 3100 I use for aiming. I did do a check switch. It register 91 OK odd and even on the check but still not saying 91 on the screen.

Not sure then, unless it is very old software on the 3100. That might be a reason.

EDIT;

If you get Ch198, then you know you are on 91 for sure.

Just hooked it to my 4100 and guess what it's nimq 91. I knew it couldn't be that hard to find. I just wasted 1.5 hrs on this. Now to go back and try and set the skew to get 82. Another day I guess.

Thanks for the assist.

You should always set the skew first......

I have set the skew etc and I can not get a hit on 82 not matter what I do. By spinning and adjusting elevation I can get both LNB to hit 91 but I can not get a hit on 82.
What transponder do you use for 82? I got fooled on that one before by using a transponder that was not being used.

If you are using an SD Receiver, you will not get all transponders, use 1 or 32, pretty sure both those are visible with a 4100, etc.
