• Place the antenna midway between the left and
right window frames.
• Tilt the hinged part of the antenna back to aim it
towards the sky (below).
Note: Objects such as the following can prevent the
antenna from receiving the satellite signal when
placed at a window or on an outside wall:
• roof extensions
• the window frame
• metallic window
screens or tinting
• objects in the window
• nearby objects like trees,
foliage, or buildings
If the signal is blocked
from getting to the
antenna, the antenna
must be relocated to
a more appropriate
window, an outside
wall free of obstruc-
