The Sat Buddy is a satellite signal meter that measures relative RF signal strength when connected to a dish antenna. It is ideal for aligning the dish antenna to receive maximum signal strength. The Sat Buddy is also used to verify signal presence within the in-house cabling network. The LNB can be powered from the IRD set-top-box through the Sat Buddy, or from the Sat Buddy’s internal battery. The Sat Buddy’s ease of use and durable construction make it the ideal basic meter for satellite installers.
