1 1 Aligning and Peaking

2 2 Introduction In this section we will use a signal level meter to align and peak a single-satellite ODU and a multiple-satellite ODU

3 3 Objectives Upon completion of this module, you should be able to: Align and peak a single-satellite ODU Align and peak a multiple-satellite ODU Upon completion of this module, you should be able to: Align and peak a single-satellite ODU Align and peak a multiple-satellite ODU

5 5 Aligning and Peaking Prior to Aligning: Clear line of sight ODU securely mounted Mast is level and plumb Elevation is set Tilt is set Prior to Aligning: Clear line of sight ODU securely mounted Mast is level and plumb Elevation is set Tilt is set

6 6 Aligning and Peaking Tools and Materials: Signal Level Meter Compass/inclinometer 3-foot Jumper Appropriate ODU assembly and adjustment tools Tools and Materials: Signal Level Meter Compass/inclinometer 3-foot Jumper Appropriate ODU assembly and adjustment tools

7 7 Acquiring a Signal: Use your compass/inclinometer to point the ODU Connect the jumper to the LNB and meter Turn on meter Acquiring a Signal: Use your compass/inclinometer to point the ODU Connect the jumper to the LNB and meter Turn on meter Peaking is the process of moving the azimuth and elevation by small amounts to achieve the highest overall signal Single-satellite ODU

8 8 Signal Level Single-satellite ODU

9 9 Unable to Acquire Signal: Mast is level and plumb Meter settings Connections Line of sight Call supervisor Unable to Acquire Signal: Mast is level and plumb Meter settings Connections Line of sight Call supervisor Single-satellite ODU

10 10 Peaking Azimuth Single-satellite ODU

11 11 Peaking Elevation Single-satellite ODU

12 12 IRD Signal Meter Single-satellite ODU

13 13 Exercise #1: Hands-on Watch the peaking process on an ODU outside Divide into groups of three Practice using a compass/inclinometer to verify line of sight Align and peak the ODU −more than once Exercise #1: Hands-on Watch the peaking process on an ODU outside Divide into groups of three Practice using a compass/inclinometer to verify line of sight Align and peak the ODU −more than once Single-satellite ODU

14 14 Acquiring a Signal: Use your compass to point ODU Connect the jumper to the LNB and meter Turn on meter Acquiring a Signal: Use your compass to point ODU Connect the jumper to the LNB and meter Turn on meter Multiple-satellite ODU

15 15 Azimuth Elevation Tilt Sweeping Method Multiple-satellite ODU

16 16 Peaking Azimuth Multiple-sat Meter screen example Multiple-sat Meter screen example BirDog Sat Meter screen example BirDog Sat Meter screen example Multiple-satellite ODU

17 17 Peaking Elevation Multiple-sat Meter screen example Multiple-sat Meter screen example BirDog Sat Meter screen example BirDog Sat Meter screen example Multiple-satellite ODU

18 18 Peaking Tilt Multiple-sat Meter screen example Multiple-sat Meter screen example BirDog Sat Meter screen example BirDog Sat Meter screen example Multiple-satellite ODU

19 19 Final Steps: Ensure Peak Signal Strength Gently push and pull on the reflector dish Make sure the signal does not vary Final Steps: Ensure Peak Signal Strength Gently push and pull on the reflector dish Make sure the signal does not vary Azimuth Elevation Tilt Multiple-satellite ODU

20 20 Exercise #2: Hands-on Watch the peaking process on an ODU outside Re-divide into groups of three Align and peak the ODU–more than once Exercise #2: Hands-on Watch the peaking process on an ODU outside Re-divide into groups of three Align and peak the ODU–more than once Multiple-satellite ODU

21 21 Summary You should be able to: Align and peak a single-satellite ODU Align and peak a multiple-satellite ODU You should be able to: Align and peak a single-satellite ODU Align and peak a multiple-satellite ODU
