HH Mount Installation Examples
Do I need a separate power line to connect to the HH Motor?
No. The motor gets its power from the receiver using the
same coaxial cable running from the receiver to the LNBF on the
dish. You simply disconnect the cable from the LNBF.
Connect it to the HH Motor. Then run a short coaxial cable
between the motor and the LNBF. You are set.
How do I control the motor to move it East / West?
The motor is controlled by the receiver's remote control.
All receivers compliant with the DiSEqC 1.2, 1.3, or USALS
protocol have the capability to run an HH motor. Once you
setup the motor on the
satellite arc and store the locations of the satellites, you
will be able to move between satellites by simply changing the
Does the motor also adjust for variation in elevation on the
dish for each satellite?
Yes it does.
Do I need to skew the LNBF on a motorized dish?
No you don't. Just set the skew at 0 and the motor will
tilt the whole dish when it moves.
What is the benefit from motorizing my dish?
Well, by adding a motor to your system you will be able to
receive satellite channels from several satellites instead from
one only. That way you will gain many more channels
economically without investing in many dishes and switches.
Where can I find out what channels are available free to air?
There are many free to air channels available in North America
on satellites such as Galaxy 10R, AMC4, Telstar 5, AMC3, etc.
There are channels from the USA and from around the world. See
http://www.lyngsat.com/america.shtml for a complete
listing of what is available. Anything with an
designation is FREE TO AIR.
