If you have a big dish you must reduce uplink power until you bring the ERP to an acceptable level.  
If you can't reduce it on the rig, don't operate until you have added an attenuator somewhere in the system.

Or in the case of a 14-foot dish, just off-point it a couple degrees to reduce the gain.
