This post will consist of both tutorials and exposition. Tracking a satellite dish can be so much joy as well as huge frustration. The honest truth is that we have many installers in Africa. We have few professional installers and we have extremely few innovative and creative installers. I will bring to your awareness some outstanding or let me say best Nigerian satellite installers.
I will bring to the delight of my readers today, a geek of an installer. When I call an installer a geek, I mean he can think out of the box and come up with the most convenient way of installing satellite channels. A big shout out to others out there as I know quite a few who are very creative. Installation is tedious and we choose to dodge it at the slightest opportunity. I do not know when last I have done any dish installation outside the ones I have at home. For this singular reason, I always give kudos to any installer who think out of the box to deliver a great idea.
How the Best Nigerian satellite installers think and act
To be honest, every satellite enthusiast can think out installing multiple satellites on a small dish. The actual problem lies in the fact that executing it is not easy. And the most discouraging aspect of it all is that it is time-consuming(especially the first time). I for one hardly do any external installation nowadays. In this post, the installer that goes by the name Adedayo(more info about him at the end) tracked four close Fta satellite channels with a one-meter dish. The satellite he installed on the dish is Nigcomsat(42.5°E), Joytv(28.5°E), Yamal/champion tv(55°E) and Old mytv position(68.5°E). These are 100% FTA channels meaning you will not need to worry about scrambling. The good news is that amentv on joytv often show live soccer(UCL mostly).
What are the requirements to getting this done?
For you to be among one of the best Nigerian satellite installers, you need to be innovative and creative. If you can do it without doing it, you are not among the best. Secondly, if you cn do it with by putting too many efforts, your ability may be questioned. But if you can do installations effortlessly, then you are up there. Below are what you need for this particular installation:
- Firstly, you need the dish 1-meter dish recommended(but you can use a 90cm dish which is the standard DS*v size)
- Secondly, you surely need good quality LNB. you need four in all(please do not go buy this yourself)
- Thirdly, you need high-quality lnb cable. This should be double the amount you would have used for a single lnb installation
- Finally and not the least important are improvised lnb holders(You can only get this from selected installers and satellite shops)
- Noteworthy: F-connector, clips, DiSEqC switch and any other as may be required.
Once you get the above ready through the help of your installer, you can watch him perform his magic.

What these Best Nigerian satellite installers have done is simple but not easy. They have saved you money and space. Instead of you buy four dishes, four lnbs and littering your house with dishes, you can buy just one and get what you would have gotten on four. Alternatively, instead of you buying a big dish and motorizing it, you can get one without motor and watch similar channels(Please do not get me wrong, nothing compared to the big dish).

- Biafira TV(aka champion tv) 55°E. Frequency: 11045 V 40000
- Multitv / joytv 28.5°E. Frequency: 12525 V 30000
And finally, Old mytv position 68.5ºE. Frequency: 12602 V 26650
Why must I have a tested and trusted Installer?
The above looks so simple but it is not really very simple. To start with, if you really want to save yourself from immediate and future anxiety and frustration, you need a proven hand. Furthermore, you can end up paying double the required amount if you use just any installer. For example, you can pay your installer who might pay a more experienced one for guidance if things get knotty. Finally, your own local installer may just do 1 out of four or ask you to buy a 1.2m dish to be able to get them(Do not blame him, his rep is at stake).
If you know you care about what I mentioned above, then you need a tested hand. The Adedayos, Adesola, Blaise, and co. The list of the Best Nigerian satellite installers are many but I can only mention few names
Who can help me do the installation ration in Lagos and its environs?
Conclusively, I am ratifying one man in Lagos for now. The reason is doing this is because he is the one credited with coming up with the installation in this article. He simply is known as Adedayo, his email is firstname.lastname@example.org and his hotline is 08033549406.
You can call him and make an appointment with him to help you with your installations. He is good with a small dish and big dish installations. He knows how to handle Cband installations as well. He is reasonably priced. He will also help you get all the necessary accessories needed to install the dish. Finally, I need to make this very clear “Contact him for your dish installations and quote Lemmy morgan. Please do not quote me if you are contacting him on anything outside dish installations” Worthy of note, he can do installation outside of Lagos if you are ready to pay his bills. It all comes down to negotiation.
