( Operating in Motion) 1. Turn on receiver and television set. The RoadTrip Mission antenna must be connected to a receiver that is plugged into 120 VAC. 2. Verify that you are getting the receiver’s menu screens on the television. These screens are available with or without the dish finding the signal. 3. Turn the power switch on for the RoadTrip Mission antenna. The dish will detect if it is already on a satellite signal. If it detects a signal, the dish will move to check it’s alternate satellite and then move back to the original satellite signal it was on. NOTE: For Tracking or In-Motion units, the dish should start moving, making one or two revolutions before it stops to acquire GPS. This can take a few moments or up to 10-15 minutes. Normal operation will be less than a minute. 4. If no signal was detected, the dish will begin its search to locate the primary satellite. Once the dish locates a signal, it will pause long enough to identify which satellite it has located. This may or may not be visible on your receiver’s point dish screen. 5. After the unit has verified that it has the correct satellite, it will move to check the alternate satellite and move back to the primary satellite to complete the search routine. 6. If you do not have signal, see Troubleshooting, p.8. NOTE: Because the RoadTrip Mission antenna uses information from the last location that it was on a signal, satellite acquisition may take longer if the dish is inactive over long distance traveling.
