Based on our experience we would recommend using qualified technicians to install your antenna. The antenna needs to be pointed much more precisely than for TV signals.
Nevertheless, if you are a keen DIYer, you won’t find it difficult to do yourself. The following sections describe what you need to know to mount and align the antenna, thus saving yourself 250 Euro. You can configure and activate the Tooway service in just a few minutes.
How to mount your antenna
Your satellite antenna needs to be assembled, but it isn’t difficult. You will need screwdrivers and spanners. Just follow the instructions you will find in the box or watch the video tutorial which talks you through the different stages. With just a little care and attention your antenna will be ready to go in only a few minutes.
How to install your antenna
Decide where you want to put the satellite dish, fix it to the surface and make sure it is secure. Next mount the dish and fix the cables. This is an important stage as the antenna will be subject to the elements. Ensure that it is stable, otherwise you will need to re-point it .
How to point your antenna
You need to know the precise coordinates to point the satellite dish. You can find them yourself using the KA-SAT FINDER: insert the installation location and you will receive the elevation, azimut and spot values. The integrated pointing system within the Tooway modem will allow you to check the signal so you can complete the installation.
