This great little gadget scores over many other satellite finders by telling you when you’ve found the satellite you’re looking for. It comes pre-programmed with four main satellites you are likely to need, and updates will be available for download with the help of a PC and supplied USB cable. The finder connects between your dish and receiver, drawing its power from the latter.

This great little gadget scores over many other satellite finders by telling you when you’ve found the satellite you’re looking for. It comes pre-programmed with four main satellites you are likely to need, and updates will be available for download with the help of a PC and supplied USB cable. The finder connects between your dish and receiver, drawing its power from the latter.

A backlit LCD screen with a bar chart and arrows gives you a precise indication of where your dish is pointing relative to the satellite, and suggests which way to adjust things. With a compass (not supplied) and a little practice we found the desired satellite can be found very quickly, but you have to be serious about watching television to pay this much for a satellite finder.
