SAT BUDDY 2 satellite signal level meter The Sat Buddy 2 measures relative RF signal strength when connected to a dish antenna. It's great for aligning a dish antenna to receive maximum signal strength, and for verifying signal presence within the in-house cabling network. The 22 kHz and DiSEqC™ switching capability allows the Sat Buddy to operate through many multi-switches. The Sat Buddy 2 is built with the same rugged weather-resistant metal enclosure as the Dual Buddy that will allow it to stand tough and give years of dependable service.

SAT BUDDY satellite signal level meter Sat Buddy for Antenna Dish Alignment and Testing. 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.  
Voltage Step-Up
Applied Instruments
Blue Bunny Voltage Step-Up What makes the Blue Bunny great? Now you can align WildBlue and Telesat/Anikast/Xplornet antennas without being connected to the modem! Get your dish pointed before you have to run your modem cables and do your provisioning. This allows you to power the TRIA with your Super Buddy™ or Sat Buddy™ meter. ***NOTE: The Blue Bunny Voltage Step Up is only compatible with WildBlue TRIAs manufactured by UMA in Taiwan. Please refer to the tag on the bottom of your TRIA to see if it’s compatible with the Blue Bunny Voltage Step Up. If it says “Made in Taiwan by UMA”, then it is compatible. If it says “Made in Korea by Ko Space”, then it is NOT compatible.***
