THE SWM COMPATIBLE - SATLOOK LITE SATELLITE METER
We have been searching for a low-cost alternative to the $500 - $600 SWM compatible meters presently on the market. We also wanted one that WAS NOT "Made in China". We found the answer to our search in The SATLOOK LITE, a Swedish made satellite finder / meter. (Think VOLVO of satellite meters!)
This meter is made to be one of the fastest and easiest to use tools for aligning a satellite dish. The "EasyFind" function makes this very easy as the installer simply chooses the wanted satellite from a list. In the "EasyFind" mode the meter will use its full capacity to search only for unique parameters of that satellite. This will help the installer to make very fast and accurate installations. The "EasyFind" mode also recalls the last selection used when powered up. The meter is intended for professional use as it presents signal levels with high accuracy and very precise information is shown. Still, it´s easily operated without a lot of unnecessary buttons and knobs making it IDEAL for the RVer to use. The basic functions are easy use and take only minutes to learn. The instrument is provided with an LCD display with back lite, which shows the different modes, like BER (bit error rate) and S/N (signal/noise ratio). The NIT function can identify the various TV satellites by reading out the NIT in the Bitstream (NIT = Network Information Table). The NIT also contains info about the transponders TV and Radio-channels. Signal strength can also be presented with pitchtones from the built In loudspeaker (the higher tone, the better signal). Satlook Lite can also display the Satellite spectrum, freq: 950-2150 MHz in normal and expanded mode. The polarization of the LNB is switchable 13V/18V/ and 21 volts for DirecTV SWM LNB's and the Hi-Lo band with 22 kHz-tone. The DiSEqC-function controls all DiSEqC-accessories (like switches, LNB´s and actuators). The power of the instrument is supplied by a built in and rechargeable battery. Even though the instrument has a lot of functions it is still very light and easy to use.
When tuning in the satellite it is not necessary to connect the receiver for power. The Satlook Lite supplies 13, 18 and 21 volts power to the LNB. When in the 21 volt mode the batteries can supply power for up to 1/2 hour. The meter's firmware is upgradeable from the manufacturer's website. The meter's full instruction manual can also be downloaded there. http://www.emitor.se/
The meter package includes the meter, with protective rubber case and a transformer to recharge the battery or operate the meter continuously, when plugged into a 120 volt power supply, a 12 volt auto power cord, and a carrying strap. Use the OPTIONS MENU to add an extra battery pack for backup.
DISH NETWORK USERS PLEASE NOTE
Dish Network made some changes to their LNB technology that requires this meter search for the correct "TRANSPONDER" for each satellite. The meter has become more difficult to use with Dish Network satellites and, as such, I can no longer recommend using it for Dish Network setups. However, it continues to work GREAT with both SWM and non-SWM DirctTV satellites and I highly recommend using it for those setups.
