Just when you thought every thing was ready to go we have a new problem the replacement Corotor does not have a Ku band elbow . So I need to find a find a replacement elbow from a old corotor or just find a Ku band Elbow , Any thoughts ?

Many thanks to every one who sent me O rings and screws . Next problem is to get the Satlook up and running or find a replacement any recommendations as it maybe hard to get spares for some thing thats about 20 years old .

Sorry you have lost me Trust " Why dont you stick this answer to the topic where it belongs , your question about the satlook ? " Do you mean change the title of the topic ? To recommendations for a replacement meter .

Well today I will check for continuity from the F socket on the unit right back to its sauce as it seems strange the loss of power but even when you power the unit up from the RX you still dont get a signal and the display is working fine or when I changed out the battery a few months back I disturb the cross over cables going from the bulkhead F connector to your bottom right hand side in the picture . The Emitor engineer gave me this drawing of one of the newer models but it dont look any thing like a MKIV FTA.
