Satellite dish antenna installation safety guidelines

Installing an antenna to receive the free TV programming you've been thinking on can be very exciting, but before the final screw is installed there are some common sense and some no so common sense suggestions that an installer should follow for a safe and long lasting satellite dish antenna installation.

  • Do not install during a windy day
  • Install dish antenna away from any power lines
  • Ground both the RG-6 cable and the antenna dish mast appropriately
  • Attach the antenna dish securely and be positive it will not come into contact with any power cables should it fall down.
  • Isolate terminals to make sure water stays out of the LNB and connectors and will not cause corrosion and signal degradation.

Satellite dish installation guidelines in Encino

First off, we use some tools to perform satellite antenna dish installation and alignment in Encino (aiming), such a satellite signal meter, appropriate size sockets and wrenches, a tall ladder, some jumper coax cables, and a powered LNB usually via the satellite signal meter. We follow common sense safety precautions when installing the satellite dish and attach the RG-6 coax cable to the home or business walls or fascia board. All electrical codes are adhered to during installation. A dish and feed array is designed to receive two or three spaced apart satellites will have two or three feeds, each with an LNB. The feeds need to be spaced apart to suit the satellite azimuth and elevation pointing angle differences. The dish acts as a mirror and forms an inverted and reversed image of the many satellites in a curved line in the focal region. If you are looking due south the satellites in the sky form a curved line with the highest satellite at the top. In such a case you would set your central feed aimed at the due south satellite. The outer feeds would be slightly higher up. The left feed would work to the right satellite and vice-versa. Many dishes have pre-made fixed LNB spacing. This assumes that the dishes will be used in the US and for the reception of satellites spaced say 9 deg apart. The entire antenna (dish and LNBs) may be rotated to set the polarization/skew angle. Optimize this for the central satellite. General purpose multi-LNB antennas may have perhaps 5 feeds. The central LNB/feed will be set first and then the outer ones individually.

Each LNB/feed needs to be adjusted, up/down and sideways and in rotation also to set the polarization angle. If all the satellites are away sideways from south, for example in a generally south west direction, the the feeds will all be in a sloping line going down towards the south west. As an example. You are on longitude 90 west and you want to point to satellites at 110 and 119 west. These satellites are further to the west than you are, so the satellites will be in a sloping line going downwards towards the south west. See the right hand half of the figure to the top right. In some cases the individual LNBs may be rotated to individually to set the polarization/skew angles correctly. In some cases the dual or triple feed assembly is not adjustable and also fixed relative to the dish and the entire dish and feed array must be rotated to set the average polarization angle correctly. The tilt makes the feed array line up with the sloping line of satellites in the upper diagram. Because the dish is a reflector the upper feed receives signals from the lower satellite and vice versa. The left feeds receives from the right satellite and vice-versa. The effective reflection point on the dish is the lower central edge of the dish in the case of offset fed designs, or the center of the dish in the case of axi-symmetric circular dishes with the primary feed in the center supported by three equal length struts. When setting up a multi-lnb system it is possible to become confused as to which LNB is in use. I suggest initially wrapping all except one feed with aluminum foil. Then only one LNB will work. Line this up correctly and verify that it really does point at the wanted satellite. Check the list of satellite TV programs and make sure that you have a unique identifying known satellite TV signal relating to a specific satellite.
