Probably the best scenario is that you will have a professional install a dish for you. However, if problems do arise and you have to position your dish you should be aware of certain things. First, the satellite dish must have a clear line of site. Avoid aiming the dish at trees and buildings. The broadband satellite signal will not be able to reach your home if anything is obstructing its path. Second, make sure you know where the satellite is located. Using a compass will be a big help. Also, when realigning the dish allow 5 to 10 seconds between every movement. This will give the dish time to run a signal scan and lock in on the satellite. Again, the best thing to do would be to save yourself adjustment aggravation and call a professional.
