Adjusting a satellite TV dish is often compared to finding a needle in a haystack. Although the coarse setting of the dish is fairly easy to find by looking at the direction of nearby dishes in the street, you may need a lot of patience, mechanical twidling and shouting to and from the TV room before the first pictures appear. The problems are often aggarvated by the fact that you are standing on a lader or "dangeling" from a balcony. The instrument described here is simply connected to the LNC output, and does away with the need to actually see the received picture. All you have to do is watch the needle of a moving-coil meter, and peak the dish adjustments for the highest reading. Battery-powered and portable!
