Basic Satellite Installation
The following is a step-by-step description of what’s included when a certified Xplornet installer performs a basic satellite installation:
Outside the home or building
Step 1: After locating a suitable line-of-sight to the satellite, the certified Xplornet installer will mount the outdoor unit (satellite antenna) using the standard tri-mast mount. The outdoor unit can either be wall mounted or roof mounted. Antenna sizes include 67cm, 74cm or 98cm.
Step 2: The installer will align the antenna to achieve optimal signal reception.
Step 3: The installer will supply and run up to 150 feet of Xplornet-approved dual RG6 cable.
Step 4: The installer will supply and install the necessary ground block on the exterior of the home or building, which will then be properly grounded according to local regulations.
Step 5: The installer will seal all exterior holes and use drip loops on all exterior cables.
Inside the home or building
Step 6: The installer will connect the satellite modem to the RG6 cables and perform the required steps to activate the service.
Step 7: Finally, the installer will test the system with their laptop to ensure the signal strength is working at its expected service level and Internet browsing is functioning.
