Will help you align your C Band Sat dish. – 2-Digit LED Satellite Finder - Black Reviews

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.
Other:
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.
