Model 75-E Antenna Assembly and Universal Mount/Mast Assembly not shown above.
Round Disc is Rear Mount Assembly.  Top Rectangular Tube is Feed Support Arm.
Bottom Left shows the INTEGRATED 75-E QUAD LNBF Assembly and rubber cable cover just above.  Other parts are enclosed inside a plastic bag.


UNIVERSAL MOUNT & MAST ASSEMBLY, Supplied With System
2.0 inch outside diameter mast pipe matches mounting clamp on antenna.  Should be installed securely and perfectly vertical  (check with a level).  End User supplies lag screws or other fasteners appropriate for their situation.

The "disc" can be rotated for proper "skew" setting of Antenna.
Center or Factory setting is at 90 degrees.  
Should be aligned for Skew Angle given for your location, and secured.


Do NOT neglect to install the Plastic Spacer inside the dish end of the feed arm.  It needs to be in there for proper support, especially after tightening the hardware.

Some Installation Notes:

Secure the ground lug to a spare hole adjacent to the curved slot at the base of the Mast Mount.  Remove surface paint if necessary to allow proper grounding. 
INSTALL THE TOOTH WASHER BETWEEN THE GROUND LUG AND UNIVERSAL MOUNT & MAST ASSEMBLY, and fasten securely to provide proper grounding.

Previous instructions mention a 2 x 2 Multiswitch.  It is NOT used or required when using the Dual Satellite Integrated Quad LNBF supplied with this system.  Use of a power divider or splitter for QUAD LNBF signal distribution is NOT recommended.  Each receiver must be connected DIRECTLY with a single cable to any of the QUAD LNBF ports (2 connections for DSR-630 DVR).  Multi-switch function is built into the logic of the QUAD LNBF, and when dish is properly aligned, and SHAW DIRECT has properly mapped your Satellite Receiver for Dual Satellite, Non-Stacked Type, all switching will be automatic.

The 75-E QUAD LNBF is specifically designed for use with this 75 cm Elliptical Antenna.  Do NOT attempt to install it on any other antenna, and do not try using the QUAD LNBF supplied for the 60-E elliptical antenna on this antenna.  Each is designed as a matched set, and will not work on other systems.  The proper QUAD LNBF for the 75-E antenna is model number LM-2738-75SC.

Installation should be set up using Channel 299 on Anik F1R satellite (107.3 West).  Once system is activated, signal level should be re-checked on Channel 712, which is on the Anik F2 satellite (111.1 West) and can be used for its alignment.

Maximum cable distance between the QUAD LNBF and any receiver is 150 feet, when used with quality RG-6 (60% braid) type cable.  There is no minimum cable length requirement.  Longer distances should use RG-11 or heavier cable, after confirming the most suitable type from a qualified technician.

Unused LNBF ports do not need to be terminated, but should use the rubber protector supplied with the QUAD LNBF to minimize exposure to moisture and environment.

Do NOT use In-Line Satellite Amplifiers with the QUAD LNBF system, as they will interrupt normal functionality.
