Record your dish limits here: East__________ West__________
 
(1) The * indicates the minimum satellites that NTC recommends you have programmed in your receiver.
(2) These are Canadian, but it is possible they could be used by NTC. We recommend that you program them as well.
3) These fields are site specific and should be changed and/or filled in by you for your location.
(4) The polarity is defined as O/H (Odd Horizontal) or O/V (Odd Vertical)
(5)  BLM and NTC does not endorse any of the programming detailed here other than using these transmissions as a tool to verify the operation and alignment of the satellite reception system at BLM Offices.
