I use the cheap D1 finder with reasonable success. However the D4 with screen sounds much better. Seems you can tune in to satellite without first setting up set top box. Is this the best finder available?


Hi Daryl,

Thank you for getting in touch.
Yes, this is the best satellite finder available. It pretty much sets itself up.
To discuss this in more details please give me a call on 08 9472 7200.

Best regards

I have just purchased a D4 satellite finder from Itech and cannot seem to find the green bar for signal quality.The instructions with the unit say that the bar will display on the screen. Could you please offer some assistance.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for getting in touch.
Please press the “info” button on the D4 to reveal the green bar for signal quality.

Does it work on batteries,what sort


Hi Tony,

It has a built in rechargeable battery.
We provide a 240v and 12v cable so you can charge the unit.

Best regards

I have just received my new D4 sat finder & couldn’t be happier. Wow! As promised it is simple to setup & use. I’m looking forward to future caravan trips & testing my D4 in all sorts of campsite locations. My favourite Itechworld product yet!

Cheers from Wayno in Mandurah!

Does the D4 give the azimuth and inclination angles so that you know roughly where the satellite is before commencing the fine tuning?


Hi Peter,

Thanks for getting in touch.
It does not tell you the azimuth or angle to use.
We use our are reference chart and Angle Finder for that.
Both available on our website.

Kind regards
