DO NOT run this test for fun! You can easily turn a working system into a disabled system by running this test and failing. If you can't pass the test, you'll need an installer to repoint your dish. And by no means run this test when weather is an issue at your location, or at the NOC. Remember this should only be attempted as a last-gasp effort before calling technical support and getting an installer out to your location for a re-point.
