About this product

Overview

Product overview

• Satellite alignment zone to help locate the direction of the satellite signal for all the main European satellites• Displays satellite name• Includes a distortion feature to identify magnetic fields that could cause problems to compass accuracy• Blue back lit digital LCD display to help with low light viewing• Suitable for use with all satellite systems• Complete with suction cups for window mounting• Can be used as a navigation compass with digital LCD readout in 1 degree intervals

To receive a clear satellite picture, a dish must have the correct vertical (azimuth) and horizontal alignment.Vertical alignment, is the angle of elevation above the horizon whereas the Horizontal alignment of a dish, is the compass bearing the dish will need to point. Correct dish alignment can be helped with the use of Omnisat digital satellite compass.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Magnetic interference from the metal of the dish made this useful as a compass only. moderator note: it is worth reading through the "calibration" section of the instructions included with this item. Calibrating the item correctly for your situation helps minimise intereference and distortion caused by surrounding items in a specific situation.
