  • Adjust the centre gimbal mount using the built-in spirit level to level the mount.
  • Fit the single piece reflector onto the mount using the hand bolts.  Fold out the feed assembly and attach the modem/battery backpack.
  • Preset the satellite elevation on feed-arm inclinometer and set the antenna elevation to match.
  • Follow the modem-specific “install” procedures and determine the optimum azimuth orientation.
  • Lock off the azimuth axis and fine tune elevation using the feedback from TRIA and modem.
  • Lock off elevation axis and let the  terminal complete the network log-in process.
  • Prepare for your live transmission!
