lat/lon vs zipcode

Recommended Posts

I know the installer used the zipcode only to get pointing directions etc. The zipcode at our location covers miles and miles and miles. If I manually enter the lat / lon numbers and re-peak the ant, will I need DW to do anything on their end? I'm hoping I can adjust for best sig, adjust for highest ACP, and lock things down without any intervention needed on their part.

Is that so?

Thanks!

no, the dish is already fine-pointed right where it has to be... the zip code just tells him about where to point it, he still has to move it around a bit to get the best signal

OK, now that you all have said that I understand where I was confused.  I'm still going to re-peak it.  I know they don't like that, but the install was pretty marginal, and I have a Birdog meter and an OPI, so what the heck.  Everything else about the install was poor (no grounding, signal in low 50's  etc.), so I have no confidence that the peaking was done correctly.

Thanks again, you guys always make me think...that's good.
