STEP 4. Tune TV to ch. 3 or 4 (to the same channel as
the output on the receiver.)
STEP 5. Determine azimuth (direction) and elevation
required for your position. Refer to receiver manual.
STEP 9. Adjust azimuth (direction) and elevation (up/
down) for strongest signal.
STEP 6. Loosen clamp knobs. Elevate reflector to the
correct elevation. Align degree of elevation required
with front of the slide bracket. Each mark indicates 5
degrees of elevation with the first mark being 0 (mark
