PM-2000 - Dish 311 compatibility
Date Modified: 2009-06-03

Question:
I purchased a Winegard antenna yesterday and a Dish Network 311 receiver. I have hooked up portable antennas before but am unable to receive any kind of signal with this setup. Is this antenna compatible with the receiver?

Tech Tip:
The Dish Network 311 receiver will work with the PM-2000 portable satellite system. Using a volt meter; check the end of the cable going into the LNBF, and you should have somewhere between +12VDC to +18VDC. If not then we have a bad cable, connection, or a receiver that is not putting out enough voltage. You might want to check the angles on the mount to be sure it is set properly. The elevation angle is to the center of the elevation bolt.
