Nikkai High Quality Dual Digital Satellite Meter

• Set up your satellite system with ease - first time!• Get the best picture possible by aligning your satellite dish precisely• Dual satellite signal strength indicators• Measures individual LNB current consumption• Blue backlit dual LCD display with full graphic text• Track two satellites simultaneously• Align the dish without the set-top box• Tests coaxial cable runs• Selectable on/off audio tone• Portable and rechargeable

The meter is designed to be an aid in aligning satellite dishes to provide maximum performance. The installer must select the correct satellite(s) for alignment. Selecting the wrong satellite will cause the receiver to indicate 'No Signal'. The software with the satellite receiver can provide the elevation and azimuth of the satellite(s) desired. With this and a good compass, you can point the antenna in the proper direction. Then, with the aid of the meter, the performance of the antenna can be maximized by watching the tuning bar and digital strength readings.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with my purchase I am very pleased with my purchase and works very well. As to the charge I've had no problem at all. If you don't keep it charged as per the other negative feedback that was left then what do you expect? I wouldn't have a second thought about purchasing this item, just my opinion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery won't hold any charge at all. Same as other reviewer. Unable to charge unit. Alrhough it's probably two 2 years old and does have a label advising charging every 3 months if storing, which I admit I have not done, surely this shouldn't happen? I have other Ni-mH devices and have not had this problem with them. Disappointing really.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great potential but battery problems as others have found. Bought early August and initial impressions very good. However the battery appears to have problems. Used 2 to 3 days after full charge and although shows voltage when switched on, after connecting to LNB get a flash of 'Battery empty' and the unit switches off.

Does this meter provide actual signal strength in dB? Also, user instructions say nothing about how to test coax, yet sales info says it can test cables. Can this test coax cables? How?

Asked by: JJBungles
The unit does not display in db.

Is the software included with the item on a disk or downloaded
Asked by: p gibson
The unit is not provided with alignment software. The product description refers to software provided with your satellite receiver (not this meter).
