Hi just recommended a portable sat system from Aldi for my dads caravan, but he is struggling to find a satellite, this is the kit which has a satellite bleep function for tuning it in to the satellite I think? http://uk.aldi.com/uk/html/offers/58_6007.htm. Don't have any experience with sats can anyone offer any advise please.

Cheers

since Freesat launched id aim it too 28.2e

elevation you could work out by just raising the dish up and down using the beeper and when signals high turn down DB until you find perfect signal. thing is though you could be picking up any sat if you dont know which direction to point it

www.dishpointer.com

thats a good site to find out which way to point it
