Simply connect the Galaxy 18 (Horizontal) feed to the Satellite/RF input on the IRD. The service can be received by several of Cisco IRD's. The parameters outlined above can be entered through the installer menu or receiver setup menu. Enter the correct L-band frequency, symbol rate, FEC rate, and LO frequency as listed above.

Note: For 9223 and 9230 IRD's, Audio Channel 1 L/R is the main program audio (stereo). Audio Channel 2 L - will provide cue tones and R - will provide mono audio. If a mono audio output is needed, slide the MO/ST selector switch on the back of the IRD to ST to prevent the cue tone being mixed with the mono audio channel.
