SW42 Switch

Dish Network uses a multi-satellite system to provide Dish 500 programming. The SW42 switch automatically toggles these signals, sending only the signal to the receiver that it requires at the time. This switch is required for a multi-satellite system to function. The switch allows your receiver to automatically toggle between the 119° and the 110° satellites as needed to provide your Dish 500 programming. [1]
