    Triax 1.1m dish instructions wanted

    Has anyone got a copy of the installation instructions they could scan and send to me or a link to them online?

    I have mislaid my instructions and when I fit a new motor i want to make sure the dish elevation bracket is set correctly.

    Its been in use several years now so may be out of alignment.

    Typical!

    I have been searching for these instructions for almost two weeks now. I was sure I had them as I never throw anything away unless I have to.

    Less than 15 minutes after posting the above, I find it!

    Triax Dish again

    Having read the instructions I am none the wiser.
    Also having seen the pdf's posted by Echelon I am none the wiser.

    What should I set the elevation for the dish to for use with a motorised set up?

    I want to make sure it is correct when I install a new motor.

    It was many years ago when I originally installed the dish, so it may be slightly out of alignment.

    I am aware that the sliding bracket has a scale on it for setting the correct elivation.

    It is a heavy dish so it would be easier to do this on the ground before I take it up the ladder.

    as above, my darkmotor booklet tells you the dish setting in its table on page 8, which varies according to latitude

    so my triax dish was initially set to the value in the darkmotor booklet and then slightly adjusted to give the best arc (ignoring any triax info completely)

    in that case the details are in the darkmotor booklet, but I have also uploaded the pdf`s onto the forum today too, so you can check them

    but it will be something similar to what satpaul mentioned anyway , generally between 25 and 30 , probably around 27.5 to 28 for you
