Installation
Installation
Installation of your Coastal Series Antenna system must be accomplished by or under the supervision of
an authorized Sea Tel dealer for the Sea Tel Limited Warranty to be valid and in force. Good planning of
the installation will provide the best results. Below is some guidance on issues that are important to consider
when planning the installation.
Planning is the key to a good installation. Read the installation information below thoroughly before beginning
the actual installation. Then review your plan to adjust for any details that may have been overlooked.
A full scale Installation Template (drawing 126355) has been provided to locate the cutout areas and mounting
holes for the antenna radome and for the antenna control panel. The radome template section of the drawing
includes the outer perimeter of the radome base so you can insure that the radome will fit in the area chosen.
1.1.
Site Selection and Cable Routing Path
The best mounting location for the antenna radome assembly is where:
1. The antenna has a clear line-of-sight view to as much of the sky as is practical. Choose a location
where masts or other structures do not block the satellite signal from the dish as the boat turns.
2. The antenna is at least 5 feet away from other transmitting antennas (HF, VHF and radar) that
may generate signals that may interfere with the Coastal Series antenna. The further away the
Coastal antenna is from these
other antennas, the less impact
their operation will have on it.
3. The antenna radome assembly
should be rigidly mounted to
the boat. If necessary,
reinforce the mounting area to
assure that it does not flex due
to the boat motion or vibration.
Choosing the best mounting location on
smaller boats, where there are fewer
possible locations to choose from, is
frequently a compromise. The Figure
shown to the right is provided to make
some location comparisons. The
“poor” location is poor because over
half of the antenna’s viewable sky is
blocked by the overhang above it. The
“better” location has less blockage, but
Possible Antenna Radome Assembly mounting locations
the upper deck and the mast will cause
some blockage when the antenna is at
lower elevations. The “best” location has no blockage from raised platforms, mast or the body of the
radar.
The Antenna Control Panel (ACP) should be mounted in a convenient location close to the satellite
receiver and TV, so that the TV screen may be viewed while the antenna is being operated, it also should
be mounted near the satellite receiver and television.
1-1
Installation
Coastal 14E Ku-Band TVRO
The ACP and the satellite receiver should be mounted near each other which is connected to each other
with a supplied 6 foot RF receiver cable, If enclosed in a cabinet or panel, assure that there is adequate
airflow to prevent from over-heating and provide forced airflow if needed.
1.2.
Coastal 14E System Inventory
Please inventory the contents of the box. It should contain all items listed in the Coastal 14E Packing List
Document number 127247 found in the back of this manual.
1.3.
Required Tools
The following tools will be required to install the Coastal 14:
1. Masking tape
2. Center punch
3. Hammer
4. Electric Drill
5. 5/16” (8mm) Drill Bit
6. 1” hole saw
7. Small hand or electric saber saw
8. 7/16” Socket Wrench or Nut Driver
9. 7/16” Open-end Wrench
10. 1/8” straight blade screwdriver
11. #2 Phillips Head screwdriver
1.4.
Prepare the Antenna Radome mounting location
1. Lay the Installation Template (drawing 126355) on the mounting surface location that you have
chosen to mount the radome on.
2. Align the radome “bow” mark on the template to be parallel to the bow of the boat. By default
the orientation of the “Sea Tel” logo is oriented towards BOW. Adjust the position of the
“Bow” marker on template to orient the LOGO where you want it. When you are satisfied with
the position, tape the template in place.
3. Using the center punch and hammer, mark the locations of the four radome mounting holes and
the cable passage. Remove the template drawing.
4. Drill the four radome mounting holes using the 5/16” drill bit and the cable passage hole using
the 1” hole saw.
1.5.
Prepare the Antenna Control Panel mounting location
1. Lay the Installation Template (drawing 126355) on the mounting surface location that you have
chosen to mount the Antenna Control Panel in.
2. Adjust the position of the template to center the Antenna Control Panel cutout portion of the
drawing where you want it. When you are satisfied with the position tape the template in place.
3. Using the center punch and hammer, mark the locations of the four mounting holes and the four
corners of the cutout area. Remove the template drawing.
4. Mark the perimeter of the cutout area. Drill a hole inside the perimeter of the cutout area to
enable you to cut the area out with the saw (the 1” hole saw might be used for this).
5. Cut the area out.

Linear Polarization Adjustment
As the polarization is mis-adjusted, the signal level will degrade. If it is mis-adjusted far enough, the
signal will be completely lost.
Polarization is adjusted for a desired satellite when the system is initially installed. Subsequently it needs
only to be adjusted when changing from one satellite to another, or when the boat has traveled a
significant geographic distance. It should NOT need to be re-adjusted if the boat stays in the same
location and is operating on the same satellite.
Polarization of your Coastal 14E Series antenna must be accomplished manually. Each time you need to
adjust the polarization you will have to take the radome top off, loosen the LNB mounting set screws and
rotate the LNB. When you have optimized the polarity, tighten the set screws and put the radome top
back on.
Note: The polarization control from the Antenna Control Panel is NOT possible.
The antenna reports that it is tracking a good signal by displaying a steady (ON) TRACKING LED. If you
determine that the satellite signal is not the desired satellite, press the NEXT key to search for the NEXT
satellite signal. Continue repeating this procedure until the correct satellite is found. Once the correct
satellite has been found, allow the antenna to track for 4-6 minutes to update the satellite position
information.
3.5.1. Optimizing the polarization while on the desired satellite
This adjustment should be done while the boat is at the pier and antenna is tracking the desired
satellite. When the boat is
traveling to a different geographic
area the polarization may need to
be re-optimized if performance
appears to be degrading.
Select the “Signal Strength”
display of the satellite receiver
(refer to the satellite receiver
manual). While monitoring the
receivers’ signal strength, adjust
polarization up or down in one (or
two) degree increments, then
observe the receivers’ signal
strength for 10-15 seconds to
evaluate the change. If an
Figure 3-1 LNB rotation during polarization
improvement is noted, continue
adjustment
small adjustments in the same
direction until the highest signal strength is obtained. If the adjustment causes a decrease,
adjust polarization in the opposite direction to increase the signal strength. When the polarization
of the antenna is optimum, tighten the set screws and re-install the radome top.

Coastal 14E Ku-Band TVRO
3.5.2. Setting polarization for a different satellite (changing satellites)
When changing from one satellite to another you may need to adjust the polarization of the LNB
to be able to acquire the satellite you want to switch to. This will only be required if the
difference in polarization angle of the two satellites is greater than ten degrees.
1. Assure that you have optimized the polarization for the satellite you are presently on.
2. Compare the longitude of the satellite you are presently on to the longitude of the
satellite you will be switching to. Note the amount & direction of the difference in
longitude position of the two satellites. Adjust the polarization 10 degrees for each 10
degrees of longitude difference between the two satellites. If the satellite you are
switching to is further East from the present satellite you will need to adjust polarization
DOWN the appropriate number of degrees. If the satellite you are switching to is West
from the present satellite you will need to adjust polarization UP the appropriate number
of degrees. Examples:
Presently optimized on Astra 1 at 19.2E and want to switch to Hotbird at 13.0E.
Difference is less than 10 degrees, so no adjustment is necessary before
searching for the next satellite (step 4).
Presently optimized on Astra 1 at 19.2E and want to switch to Astra 2 at 28.2E.
Difference is about 10 degrees East. You need to rotate the LNB (POL DOWN)
10 degrees and then search for the next satellite (steps 3 & 4).
Presently optimized on Astra 1 at 19.2E and want to switch to Thor 1 at 0.8W.
Difference is about 20 degrees West. You need to rotate the LNB (POL UP) 20
degrees and then search for the next satellite (steps 3 & 4).
3. Adjust polarization UP/DOWN the amount determined in step 2.
4. Press NEXT to search for the next satellite. If the next satellite found is not the desired
satellite, press NEXT to continue searching. Repeat searching until the desired satellite
is found. Allow the antenna to track the satellite for about two minutes.
5. Optimize polarization while on the new satellite using the procedure above.
If you will be changing satellites periodically to view different programming, note the polarization
for each of the satellites you will be using. Setting the polarization before searching for the next
satellite will help shorten the search process.
3.5.3. Setting polarization when you have changed geographic areas
If the boat is travelling a great distance it is recommended that you optimize the polarization
using the above procedure after each 10 degree latitude or longitude change. If you have
changed latitude and longitude by a significant geographic distance, while the antenna has been
tracking a different satellite, it may be necessary to adjust the polarization to find the desired
satellite.
If you are able to find (and identify) a satellite, optimize the polarization and follow the procedure
above to change from the satellite you are presently on to the one you desire to be using. If you
are not able to find any satellites, adjust polarization up or down 10 degrees and press NEXT to
search for a (next) satellite signal. Continue adjusting polarization and searching, until a satellite
signal is found and you can then change from the satellite you are presently on to the one you
desire to be using.
If after all polarization settings have been tried and no satellite signal can be found, refer to the
Troubleshooting section of this manual.
