I wasn’t going to say anything

I’ve been having such a hard time with this satellite dish. I quit talking about it, I was going crazy. I couldn’t get the signal to lock on. Then I found out that there is no signal. We are not in the footprint of the signal from the satellite.
The little red tick in the pic above shows where the satellite is, as it orbits over the equator, the earth turns, and makes the satellite always stay above the same spot on Earths surface. The pictures above and below show the areas where the satellite transmits it’s signal. It is called the ‘footprint’. As you can see in the pic below, Cayman is not in the footprint.
I’ve been kicking myself in the ass. Calling myself incompetent. Losing sleep. Growing zits. Thinking God is punishing me. Worrying about the customer wanting money back. Putting myself through hell.
Dammit

  1. Ugh, how INFURIATING, I can only imagine the frustration you must be feeling. You poor thing, I really do hope there is an alternative solution to this. Good luck, hon.
