I am in Ranchi, Jharkhand, India trying to set up our Lighthouse. Thus far we utterly failed to tune it to ABS-2. We need help. According to the satfinder website, we should be looking:
*) 60 degrees above terrain
*) 25 degrees west of true south
The figure above terrain seems odd; other dishes on our roof (for Airtel and TataSky) are both pointed approximately 30 degrees above terrain. So we tried both 30 and 60.
We used librarian.outernet “Tuner Settings” to search for a lock. It barely flickered thrice.
Did you use the Tuner Settings screen? Does it reliably update itself in real-time as you pivot the satellite dish? How did you find your angle and aziumuth?
Thanks! Aron and Satyam for www.ekal.org
