2 Plan the Antenna Installation
Before you begin, consider the following antenna
installation guidelines:
•
•
Figure 4: Blockage from Obstruction
Minimize blockage. The antenna requires a
clear view of the sky to receive satellite TV
(see Figure 4). The fewer obstructions, the
better the system will perform.
Make sure the mounting surface is wide
enough to accommodate the antenna’s base
(see Figure 5). Also make sure it is flat, level,
strong enough to support the antenna’s
weight (55 lbs, 25 kg), and rigid enough to
withstand vibration.
Select a location that is as close as possible to
the intersection of the vessel’s fore-and-aft
centerline and midships.
•
Do not mount the antenna at the same level
as the radar because the radar’s energy might
overload the antenna. Ideally, you should
mount the antenna 4 ft (1.2 m) above and 4 ft
(1.2 m) away from the radar.

3 Plan the Switchplate Installation
Before you begin, consider the following
switchplate installation guidelines:
•
Select a switchplate mounting location in a
dry, well-ventilated area belowdecks away
from any heat sources or salt spray.
•
Be sure to leave enough room at the
switchplate’s rear panel for connecting the
cables (see Figure 6 for switchplate
dimensions).
•
Figure 6: Switchplate Dimensions
4.39"
(111.5 mm)
2.96"
(75.2 mm)
Since the supplied data cable is 50 ft (15 m)
long, the switchplate must be located within
50 ft (15 m) of the antenna.
Prepare the Switchplate Mounting Site
Once you have identified a suitable switchplate
mounting site, follow these steps to prepare the
site for installation.
Figure 7: Switchplate Mounting Holes Layout
a. Using the switchplate mounting template
provided at the end of this manual, mark and
cut out a hole in the mounting surface to
accommodate the switchplate (see Figure 7).
b. Using the same template, mark the locations
for the four switchplate mounting holes.
c. Drill a 3/32" (2.25 mm) hole at the four
mounting hole locations. Later, you will
mount the switchplate using four #6 screws.

4 Prepare the Antenna Site
Once you have identified a suitable antenna
mounting site, according to the guidelines
provided in Step 2, follow these steps to drill the
mounting holes and cable access hole to prepare
the site for installation.
a. Unfold the antenna mounting template
(supplied in the Customer Welcome Kit) and
place it onto the mounting surface. Make sure
the “FWD” (forward) arrow points toward
the bow and is parallel to the vessel’s
centerline (see Figure 8).
NOTE: You don’t need to mount the antenna
exactly on the vessel’s centerline, but the
antenna’s forward arrow must be parallel to it.
b. Use the template to mark the locations for the
four mounting holes and cable access hole on
the mounting surface.
c. Drill a 1/2" (13 mm) hole at the four
mounting hole locations you marked in
Step 4b. Later, you will insert four 3/8"-16
bolts through these holes to secure the
antenna to the mounting surface.
d. Cut out the 3" (80 mm) cable access hole in
the location you marked in Step 4b. Smooth
the edges of the hole to protect the cables.
Later, you will route the data, power, and RF
cables through this hole and into the vessel.
e. Clean and dry the antenna mounting surface.
f.

5 Remove the Restraint
Inside the antenna, a foam block prevents the
antenna assembly from moving during
shipment. Follow these steps to remove this
shipping restraint.
Figure 10: Removing the Radome
a. Remove the six #10-32 Phillips screws
securing the radome to the baseplate (see
Figure 10). Carefully lift the radome straight
up until clear of the antenna assembly and set
it aside in a safe place.
TIP: If you keep the radome topside, secure it with
a lanyard to prevent it from falling overboard.
#10-32 Screw (x6)
b. Remove the foam block that is wedged
beneath the antenna’s reflector (see
Figure 11). Save this restraint for future use;
the customer will need to reinstall it if he/she
needs to relocate or reship the antenna.
IMPORTANT!
Once you have removed the restraint, handle
the antenna very carefully. With the restraint
removed, the internal antenna assembly
rotates freely and, if not handled properly,
can damage the limit switch.

6 Wire the Antenna
Follow these steps to connect the data, power,
and RF cables to the antenna.
a. First determine the number of RF coax cables
required for your particular installation (see
Figure 12). (See Figure 13 to determine the
type of cable required.)
b. Route the data, power, and RF cables
belowdecks through the 3" (80 mm) cable
access hole. Leave an adequate service loop,
approximately 8" (20 cm) of slack, in the
cables for easy serviceability. Later, you will
connect the data and power cables to the
switchplate and the RF cable(s) to the
receiver(s).
c. Connect the data cable to the “Data” jack on
the bottom of the antenna (see Figure 14).
Hand-tighten until the connector locks in
place; do not use excessive force.
d. Connect the power cable to the “Power” jack
on the bottom of the antenna. Hand-tighten
until the connector locks in place; do not use
excessive force.
e. Connect the RF coax cable(s) to the antenna.
If you need to connect just one RF cable,
connect the cable to the “RF1” jack on the
bottom of the antenna. Hand-tighten, then
tighten with a 7/16" wrench for 1/4 turn to
ensure an electrical and weather-proof
connection. Connect any additional RF coax
cables to the antenna’s RF2, RF3, and RF4
jacks, in that order.

Follow these steps to mount the antenna to the
mounting surface.
Figure 15: Forward Arrow in Antenna Baseplate
a. Place the antenna baseplate over the holes
drilled in the mounting surface.
b. Make sure the forward arrow inside the
baseplate points toward the bow and is
parallel to the vessel’s centerline (see
Figure 15).
c. Make sure the four holes in the baseplate line
up with the four holes in the mounting
surface.
IMPORTANT!
You will need to rotate the antenna assembly
by hand to see all four mounting holes. Rotate
the antenna assembly slowly. If it hits a
mechanical stop with excessive force, the
limit switch might become damaged.
d. At each of the four baseplate mounting holes,
place a 3/8" flat washer on a 3/8"-16 bolt and
insert the bolt into the hole from above (see
Figure 16).
e. Secure each mounting bolt to the mounting
surface using a 3/8" shoulder washer, a
3/8" flat washer, and a 3/8"-16 lock nut from
below. Tighten all four bolts until the four
rubber feet are bottomed against the
mounting surface and the foam seal is fully
compressed.
TIP: If you are installing a linear system, you may
wish to keep the radome off for now. Later, you will
need to adjust the skew angle of the antenna’s LNB.

IMPORTANT!
Be sure the multiswitch is properly grounded.
With the multiswitch grounded, you do not
need to ground the individual receivers.
IMPORTANT!
(DIRECTV only) Multiswitches
block a receiver’s 22 KHz tone
that the antenna needs to switch
satellites automatically.
Therefore, the customer will need
to manually switch satellites
using the optional TV/SAT
Switch (KVH part #01-0245).

Be sure all receivers are grounded. If the
receiver has a 2-prong power plug, run a
ground wire from the receiver’s chassis to a
suitable ground point. If a potential exists
between AC and DC grounds, connect the
wire to the switchplate’s DC return instead.

C User-Defined Satellites
The satellite library in the TracVision antenna
includes two slots for user-defined satellites
(USER 1 and USER 2). You can program one or
both of these library slots for any satellite you
wish that is not already set up in the library.
To configure a user-defined satellite, you will
need to program into the antenna the following
information about the satellite (see Figure 32):
•
Satellite name
•
Satellite longitudinal position
•
Transponder information for all
combinations of polarization and band:
• vertical high
• vertical low
• horizontal high
• horizontal low
OR
• right
• left
•

•
Symbol rate
•
FEC code rate
•
Network ID
•
Decoder type
NOTE: You can find this satellite information on the
web at www.lyngsat.com or www.satcodx.com
(neither website is affiliated with KVH).
