When installing a satellite dish, normally it is a static satellite dish and you just have to align the satellite dish to the correct satellite, probably using a “meter” or a tools like “Dishpointer

However, when installing a satellite dish on a motor it is sometimes best to do things a bit differently.

You have to make sure that your motor is set up correctly to move the satellite dish along the satellite arc.

For most of the UK, you can use the satellites closest to your due south to help install the motorised satellite dish.

The satellite to align to are the Thor 2 & 3 satellites at 0.8 degrees West. These satellites are near the top of the satellite arc.

By setting up your motorised satellite dish to these satellites, then only small adjustments should be required to ensure the movement of the dish tracks the other satellites in the satellite arc.
