(160-2508)       Setting The Inclination Angle        Faxback Doc. # 31428

The correct inclination angle setting is necessary to allow you to receive
all the satellite signals.  Use data from your alignment data printout
during this procedure.

CAUTION:  To protect your dish, we suggest that you get a friend to help
          with this procedure.

1.  Locate the maximum look angle listed on your alignment data printout.

2.  Determine which hole to attach the turnbuckle to as follows, See "Angle
    Adjustments/Connections":

    *  If the maximum look angle on your alignment data printout is 54
       degrees or greater, use hole B.

    *  If the maximum look angle on your alignment data printout is
       greater than 38 degrees and less than 54 degrees, use hole A.

    *  If the maximum look angle on your alignment data printout is 38
       degrees or less, use hole C.

3.  Loosen the inclination adjustment bolts, lower the dish, and reattach
    the loose end of the turnbuckle.

    NOTE:  Be sure to leave the inclination adjustment bolts loose until
           we tell you to tighten them.

4.  Be sure the dish is centered (the alignment mark on the worm-gear
    cover is pointing at the mark on the rack gear plate).

5.  Turn the center section of the turnbuckle until the inclinometer
    reading matches the maximum look angle listed on you alignment data
    printout.

    NOTE:  Be sure to leave the inclination adjustment bolts loose until
           we tell you to tighten them.
