2. How to Mount a Satellite Dish

  • Sky satellite dish, complete with wall bracket and arm
  • Coach bolt M8 x 50mm & 10mm plastic plugs (qty: 4)

Tools needed to mount on a wall

  • Cordless drill - ideally a 24-36v SDS Drill
  • 8mm, 10mm drill bits
  • 10mm, 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Satellite meter

Criteria on where to mount the satellite dish?

  • Dish must face South East (141 degrees i.e. direction of sun 11am BST)
  • Wall must be a solid surface capable of carrying weight of satellite dish
  • Signal must not be blocked by houses or trees (signal is coming in at 21 degrees to the horizontal)
  • Place at back or gable end of house to minimise visual intrusion
  • Place as close at possible to TV room to which the satellite cables are to connected so as to minimise cable run

Steps

  • Place the wall bracket and arm in the correct location
  • Use the cordless drill and 8mm drill bit to drill 4 guide holes
  • Use 10mm drill bit to drill holes to a depth of 60mm
  • Insert the 4 plastic plugs in the holes and mount the wall bracket using the 4 coach bolts
  • Tighten the coach bolts using the 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Attach the satellite dish to the arm of the wall plate
  • Use 10mm socket to lightly tighten the dish 'U'-bolts so they are fixed to arm but the dish can still be rotated
  • Follow steps in the how to align a satellite dish guide

3. How to Align a Sky / Freesat Satellite Dish

  • Having already mounted the satellite dish on your wall
  • Attach your satellite meter to the dish LNB
  • Align the dish so that it is (1) perfectly vertical, (2) pointing south east (141 degrees).
  • Rotate the dish slowly over and back
  • Repeat adjusting the tilt angle by 1 or 2 degrees to until a signal is found
  • Tighten the U-bolts and side bolts using the 10mm & 13mm sockets
  • Disconnect the satellite meter
  • Connect a cable with an 'F-type' connector from the dish to the satellite box
  • Check that the signal is working

4. How to Run Cables & Attach Connectors

The next step is to run satellite cable to the satellite receiver

Tools needed

  • Hammer
  • Snips
  • Drill
  • SDS Drill Bit 10X450

Equipment

  • Satellite Installation Kit

Prior to begining you must decide

  • Decide how to run cable
    • Connect into existing cables in the attic
      • Normally neater but requires additional connectors
      • May need a multi-meter to be able to identify the correct cable
      • May result in longer cable runs
    • Run a cable directly from the satellite dish to the satellite receiver
      • Fastest and easiest way to run a cable
      • Cable runs are normally shorter
      • Requires the drill of a hole through a wall

STEPS

  • If the satellite receiver is to be located next to the external wall of a room
    • Use a drill and an SDS Drill Bit 10x450 to drill a hole through the wall
    • Ensuring to drill from the inside out
  • To conceal broken plaster use either
    • Hole tidy (insert inside and out before the cable is run)
    • Cable cover nailed onto the outside wall after the cable has been run
  • Feed the end of the satellite cable through the wall leaving enough cable to reach the front of the satellite box
  • Now start tacking the cable using 7mm clips and a hammer
  • Ensuring that the cable runs down from the hole that been drilled in the wall
  • This will stop water following the cable into the house
