    I think its fair to assume that the dish will tell you when its not happy:BigGrin:
    When you keep loosing picture or pixilating to the point of annoyance
    Wind it down

    Its no good working to a wind speed cos you aint got no method of measuring it, and it all depends on direction relative to the dish:Doh:

    Out of interest what stations can you get in Calpe on an 85cms dish? My understanding was that this area was an absolute no no for satellite TV.
