I have aDG280 mover on my 90cm, my most southern sat would be 121deg.
im a little off on all sat about  0.5 deg+ instead of Rotating it on the pole could I

If a global change is not needed that will affect all satellites, then you can "move the satellite" instead. If you find USALS doesn't precisely tune in one or two satellites on either extreme end of the arc, edit the satellite orbital position by a few tenths of a degree. This allows me to motor in USALS mode from 15W through 121W.

I've done exactly that, and it will work fine so long as the difference is relatively small. Half a degree shouldn't pose a problem. The further offset you are from reality, the more the ends of your arc will be distorted because the dish will be higher or lower than it needs to be for proper tuning.sattracksa7.jpg

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
