Recent Review: Matt - Buffalo, NY - 3/2/2015 Great product! Makes aiming DirecTV easy and results in signal through tough weather conditions.
Great product! Makes aiming DirecTV easy and results in signal through tough weather conditions. Matt - Buffalo, NY - 3/2/2015 6:55:42 PM Aiming straightforward, follow the guide right on the meter. You should be able to get 100 signal on 101 and 95+ on 119. Then the rest (99+103) should fall in place.
