DIRECTV’s AIM Meter is THE satellite meter to use if you’re serious about aiming DIRECTV dishes. It’s the only one approved for installer use, the only one that will aim the new generation of SWM-enabled dishes, and having used one I can tell you that it makes installation easier than any other meter on the market.
One of our distributors recently made me aware of new upgrade procedures for the meter. Unlike other meters, the AIM can be upgraded by downloading new firmware onto a flash drive. The procedure is easy if you know the steps. Professional DIRECTV installers already have this information.
In the interest of helping the dedicated amateurs out there, here’s a link to that same document so that you can properly upgrade your meter.
