The Dual Buddy satellite meter measures relative RF signal strength when connected to a dish antenna. It is designed for installing and maintaining typical DBS residential satellite systems. In the balancing modes, the Dual Buddy measures two satellite feeds and displays their relative signal strength. The Dual Buddy also measures LNB current and the voltage being supplied to the LNBs. It can power LNBs and multi-switches using its internal battery or allow IRD power to run through it.
