re:squint and winorbit



Very nice but......

I am using the Winorbit and I like it, every day I find new things about it
I just found the place to put the Alon Alat but do somebody knows how to 
put the values.

I am fighting to make a dish because the noise level is to hig with helical
antenas.

Thanks and Best contacts via Satelites.
