Changing to Dish Eastern Arc


Recommended Posts

I need to change from Dish Western arc to Eastern arc because of line of sight problems with the 129 sat. I am going to change to a 1000.2-- 2 lnb eastern arc dish from a 1000.2-- 3 lnb western arc dish. I have the print outs giving all aiming coordinates for the different zip codes of western arc but I can't find the comparable printout for the 2 lnb eastern arc sats. Also when setting up western I located the 119 sat first then minor adjustments for the other two. Now with only 2 sats which one gets peaked first? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Dave

Aren't there two different dishes or LNBs for EA and WA.

 

Yes and Yes.

 

The 1000.2 dish ships as a Western Arc (sats 110, 119, 129) dish, but can be modified to an Eastern Arc (sats 61.5 and 72) dish.

 

The 1000.4 dish ships as an Eastern Arc (sats 61.5, 72, and 77) dish, but can be modified to a Western Arc (sats 110, 119, 129) dish.

Hello,

All said and done I decided to buy a 1000.4EA, 3lnb setup. So I have a couple more questions I didn't realize before that I have.

Which two ports do the two coax attach to on the lnb head?

Does it matter which cable attaches to #1 and #2 connectors ports on the solo node?

Thanks Again

Dave

It doesn't matter for the Solo node, but when you're aligning the dish you should peak on sat 72.7 as some sat meters can't "cycle" through all 3 sats by just connecting to a single port.

 

So mark the 72.7 coax in case you need it for peaking:
