AFN Antenna and Decoder Setup
Connecting the Antenna (Satellite Dish) and Decoder
TIP: You should place the TV and decoder beside the
antenna, or within view of the antenna (through a window from the
outside location) for aligning purposes. You can place the TV and
decoder box outside at the antenna location by running an extension
cord to that location.
a) Connect the antenna to the decoder box using RG-6 coaxial cable
with “F” type connectors. Thinner RG-59 coaxial cable can be used
at lengths of 50ft or less. You can purchase these items at you
local Powerzone, or on the local market at an electronics store.
Figure 9 Antenna cable and connectors
Leave enough slack in the cables so that the dish may move back and
forth and up and down.
