We've had our Trav'ler Dish system for over five years, fulltime, and have never had a need to do any calibration, assuming this can be done or is needed.  What is the problem you are having that would necessitate a recalibration?

1. Press [POWER] and hold for 2 seconds to turn “ON” the TRAV’LER Interface Box. Wait until the
Interface Box fnishes “connecting to antenna”.
* The TRAV’LER may enter the “Search Routine” after 10 seconds this is normal (See NOTE Below).
2. Press [ENTER] and hold for 2 seconds or until the unit displays “Enter User Menu”. Press [SELECT]
to move the asterisk to “Yes”. Press [ENTER].
3. Press [SELECT] to move the asterisk to INSTALLATION.
4. Press [ENTER]. You will be asked to provide a code to enter the Installation Menu.
5. Press [ENTER] 4 times to enter code 0000.

7. Press [ENTER].
8. Press [SELECT] to move “ * ” to YES.
9. Press [ENTER] to start the elevation calibration procedure. The LCD should now display “ Cali

10. After a few moments the IDU LCD will display “On EL Hard Stop?- Yes *No”. Visually examine
the antenna to verify that the antenna is against the Hard Stop. The antenna will be pointing as far up
as it can go, this is the Hard Stop.
11. Press [SELECT] once to move asterisk to “Yes” if antenna is on the Hard Stop.

I don't think the skew is working properly.  After it finds the satellites and peaks the signal for 99 & 103 are low.  If I manually move the skew just an 1/2 inch or so all the transponder signals go up into the 90's.

Thanks Biker.  I'll give it a shot.
