The Birdog meter is an innovative, professional quality satellite identification and alignment meter. Easy to operate, it is designed with an integrated signal strength and picture quality gauge for fast and efficient installation. Designed mostly for professional installers, its ease of use also makes it an excellent purchase for do-it-yourselfers who won't settle for anything less than the best.
How the Birdog Meter Works
The Birdog meter uses USID (unique satellite information data) in order to communicate with digital satellite transmissions. Typically, such devices are only capable of giving you a sense that there are satellites in the sky and giving you a peek at their signals. The Birdog is actually capable of identifying the satellite based on the signal it is emitting.
To operate the Birdog meter, start by connecting it to your satellite dish. From the menu on the display, choose between the types of two-way broadband satellites you are looking for, then move the dish until the Birdog meter says "found." The meter will then indicate the necessary information--such as signal level and digital data error rates--to optimize your alignment.
