The Pointing application has two meters. The signal Level Meter helps to locate the satellite
and the CNR meter helps to fine tune the antenna pointing after the correct satellite has been

found.

Indicates the strength of a satellites signal.

CNR Level:

Indicates the strength of the satellite signal you need to lock on too.

Click the button labelled Start Installation mode

7. Find the satellite


Using the Signal Level Meter start to move the antenna until you see the signal level start to
rise.

The signal level rising means that your antenna is looking at a satellite.

When the antenna is pointing at the correct satellite the Signal Level meter will be very high
and you should start to see the level on the CNR meter start to rise.

If the modem can lock onto the satellite signal both meters will turn green.

Fine tune your antenna pointing by watching the CNR level.

When you have achieved optimal levels lock off all the bolts on your antenna tight so the
antenna will not move.
