WorldWIdeSatellites are Authorized Dealers of Super Buddy Meters.

The Super Buddy 29 has all of the great features of the standard Super Buddy satellite meter plus an internal combo 21 volt / 29 volt module to power the new DIRECTV SWM LNBs and the WildBlue / Telesat / Xplornet TRIAs!

Be "sure of your bird" with the positive ID feature or use the automatic scan to identify the unknown satellite.

Tired of loading new satellite plans? Super Buddy's geo-sensitive field guide shows you just the birds visible to your install     - ALL of them, and their individual transponders.

In addition to positively identifying the satellite, displayed measurements include signal level (dBm), quality (IRD or C/N), voltage supplied by the receiver, current drawn by LNB, and L.O. frequency drift of the LNB. Super Buddy is compatible with single and multi-LNB configurations.

Navigate easily from bird to bird with left/right arrows and through the individual transponders with up/down arrows. It's the BEST and the FASTEST!

Don't know the angles for your antenna? The zip-code look up gives you elevation and azimuth for whichever satellite you select.

Satellite delivery is becoming more complex, but the SUPER BUDDY makes it easier! Handle the toughest jobs better, faster and cheaper .

Superbuddy Ideal for Use with the Following Systems:

Dish Network (including new Dish Network 118.7 and 129)
