A. Out to Receiver (Receiver) - Used to connect the T2 AutoMotion to
the satellite receiver.
B. In from the Dish (Antenna) - Used to connect the dish to the T2
AutoMotion with the supplied single RG6 coax cable.
C. Not used. For testing purposes only

Press the Satellite Select Button to select the specific satellite or function.
Note: At the time of printing of this manual, the
following are definitions of the use of each
particular satellite:
61 – Dish Network
82 – Bell Express
91 – Bell Express
101 – DirecTV (Primary Satellite)
110 – DirecTV / Dish Network
119 – DirecTV / Dish Network (Primary Satellite)
148 – Dish Network

Front Panel Status LEDS:
● Search -
When lit, this LED indicates the dish is “searching” for a
satellite.
● Tracking -
When lit, this LED indicates the dish has found a satellite
and is locked on.
● Sleep -
Pressing the SELECT button when ON satellite will illuminate the
SLEEP status and turn OFF the TRACK status. The dish will not track
at this time and is referred to as a HARD SLEEP MODE.
Pressing the SELECT button one more time will turn ON the TRACK
status (the SLEEP mode will still be illuminated) and this will put the
dish in a SOFT SLEEP MODE. The dish will begin to move only
when it senses a drop in signal level.
Satellite Selection:
Pressing this button cycles through the satellites listed. Simply highlight the desired satellite and
the system automatically searches for that satellite, finds it and peaks for performance.

RAIN FAID ON DOME SYSTEMS
Read all about it………….
Subject:
Rain fade on Domed (Covered) Systems
What is rain fade? Rain fade is signal degradation due to the interference of rain
droplets. Rain can affect performance as well as heavy water content thunder clouds.
Satellite frequencies have a great deal to do with degradation. C band satellite
frequencies have the best resistance to rain fade, KU band satellite frequencies have the
next best performance, and KA band frequencies are the most susceptible to rain fade.
Rain fade is also known as rain attenuation.
There are quiet a few examples of rain fade or degradation.
1. There is heavy rain (large droplets); it can block the uplink channels for
reception.
2. There is heavy rain that can block the receive signal to the satellite.
3. There is also moisture build-up on the dome or cover.
Unfortunately, all these examples are caused by acts of nature, that with a domed system
you will always experience all of the symptoms in varying degrees. There are things you
can do to reduce degradation.
1. If you live in Seattle, move to Arizona.
2. Get a big fan, point it towards the sky and blow the clouds away.
3. KEEP YOUR DOME CLEAN- Soap and water are the most efficient
methods. Some harsh or abrasive cleaners can be harmful to the outside of
the dome as well as signal interference. NOTE: Some types of cleaners as
well can eventually collect dirt. Be sure to select one that will work for
you.
4. After rain, wipe the water droplets off the Dome.
5. A bigger dish size and superior surface accuracy reduces rain fade
problems.
All domes on the market are susceptible to rain fade. MotoSAT’s Dome (aka Mini
Dome) as well as the T2 AutoMotion are the two domed satellite television systems that
have the lowest rain degradation on the market. Because of size and surface accuracy of
our dish, MotoSAT can offer the best performance in rain fade situations.
