LO stands for Local Oscillator.  It is the oscillator used by your LNB or LNBF.  It MUST match in your meter, so enter the same LO information from your LNB into your meter in the ‘LO’ field.  Most LNBs have the LO printed on the label.
Common LO’s are:

  • Ku Universal LNBF:  09750 & 10600
  • Ku US LNBF:  10750
  • DSS LNBF:  11250
  • C band LNBF:  5150

LNBFs with 2 LOs use 22 KHz for switch between them.  If you don’t know how to use the 22KHz switching see:  How do I know when to turn the 22KHz on?

Li-Ion battery care

Proper maintenance of your battery is critical.

Your meter uses a Li-Ion (Lithium-Ion) battery. Li-Ion batteries are light and the most powerful battery available. They have no ‘memory’ and with proper care can last a long time. Li-Ion batteries require chargers with circuitry to protect the battery from over charging or dis-charging.
Use the charger that came with your meter. The chargers have a micro-processor that matches the battery. Use of any other charger voids your warranty and may damage your battery and/or your meter.
Before you use your new meter, charge the battery until it is full. For best results, batteries should be charged at room temperature for no more than 8 hours.
DO NOT charge the battery for over 12 hours.
DO NOT over charge your battery. Over charging can damage your battery.
DO NOT leave your meter in a vehicle where the temperatures reach extreme highs or lows.
DO NOT short the battery leads.
DO NOT disassemble or deform the battery in any way.
Avoid excessive physical shock or vibration.
If you are not using your meter on a regular basis, remember to charge your battery at least 1 time per month.
If you store your meter, store it in a cool dry place with a 30% to 60% charge. It is a good idea to unplug the battery from the meter.
Never let your battery go completely dead as it may damage the circuitry in the battery and keep the battery from charging.
If you plan to air ship your meter with the battery, the battery should be charged 30% to no more than 60%. You should not air ship a fully charged battery. You are required to notify the carrier that you are shipping a Lithium Ion battery or a device containing a Lithium Ion battery.
