FREE software for editing satellite/transponder lists

 Most of our loadable satellite/transponder lists can be modified to fit your needs, or you can make your own lists. To modify or make lists you need Microsoft Excel... or do you? 

The drawback of Microsoft Excel is the cost. Microsoft wants us all to move to the cloud exposing your data and making it possible for them to charge a monthly fee.

Microsoft Excel pricing

Not all of us, including me, want to work this way. I don't want to spend money for software that I seldom use and will expire forcing us to update to a newer version at more cost.

I learned from timheinrichs.com that there are alternatives which work perfectly well for modifying satellite/transponder lists and even making new lists.

While there are several alternatives I found that the satellite/transponder lists at Sathero Meters was made with LibreOffice.

We use LibreOffice and it works perfectly for the lists and for all other excel files we have. 

Save your money for better uses.

How to use your older meter to align your dish

If you have a older meter that does DVB-S but not DVB-S2 you can usually still align a satellite dish.

You will need our free worldwide Satellite / Transponder list to find a DVB-S transponder on the satellite you want to align to. Aligning to a DVB-S signal will give you a good alignment to the satellite and to DVB-S2 transponders.

Current (September 1st, 2020) count.

DVB-S2 transponders: 4635
DVB-S transponders: 2354


Keep in mind that transponders are changing over to DVB-S2 so eventually it will be hard to find DVB-S signals on some satellites. Start saving for a meter upgrade.

In my opinion Sathero Meters are the best for quality, accuracy, durability and price.
