    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Works well enough to get a good lock on a satellite.
    Reasonable construction (haven't opened it though!)
    Instructions make reasonable sense.

    Cons:

    Even at the highest attenuation level it is not fine grained enough for very fine adjustment.

    OtherThoughts:

    Using the receivers signal meter a could not find the satellite (Chinasat 6B) even though I had a reasonable idea where it should be in the sky.
    With the Satellite finder attached I found it after a few minutes of swinging the dish back and forward and adjusting the elevation.
    From there I adjusted the attenuation setting and repeated making smaller adjustments.

    Bottomline:

    If you need to align you dish this will get the job done, if you have an idea of what you are doing.
