First time attempting an antenna set up .
Hard part is figuring where to point it.
Each direction either gains or looses channels.
Seem to be only able to pick up 7 channels at a time.
Further testing to be done today.

currently using a openbox S9 Hd and S10 Hd with a 10 ft c band dish and a 39' ku motorized dish. true fta rocks... as does LFTA and Hypermegasat!

Either one of those antennas would be very directional. Antennas have to be of two kinds, omnidirectional with very little gain, or unidirectional with suitable gain, thus being very directional which requires a rotor to access multiple direction stations.  E_V
