Re: Reception of C band - Problem #aero
My method is the following for elevation: I place my offset dish in vertical position, note the index on the dish indicator and rotate the dish by 10° according to the dish indicator. I hope it is a correct way to do for an offset dish (?).
I think this works with prime focus dishes but not off set dishes - I found this article which may help to explain - although I'm not suggesting your dish is off set by 22 deg - but this is just an example
As I mentioned before my dish appears to look down below the horizontal. Perhaps the idea for you would be to get the Azimuth correct, align the dish to look horizontally (dish edges vertical) and then lower the elevation in small amounts until a signal appears ( the frequencies I'm looking at are 1533.92 and 1534.46MHz - subject to variations in the LNB local oscillator)
Keep trying, I'm sure you will succeed in the end :)
