Getting signal from the antenna to the receiver has many of the same considerations as getting water from a spigot to the end of a hose:

  • The hose must be of good quality materials to not contaminate the water
  • It must be free of damage, hard bends and kinks
  • There must be adequate water pressure to send the water down the hose

Satellite signal is not different:

  • The quality of the components must be of good quality so as to not affect the signal quality
  • The cable and components must be installed in a manner that is free of damage or hard bends/kinks
  • The antenna must be peaked properly to send maximum signal from all orbitals to each receiver in a system
