DIY Satellite Dish Realignment

My satellite dish may have slipped slightly out of alignment. Is realigning it a DIY job, or should I call a professional?

I think my satellite dish has become marginally misaligned. I am in the UK, and I am getting the Astra 1N channels, but Eutelsat 28A channels either give no image/sound, or sometimes flicker in and out. If the satellite dish was easily reached I wouldn't hesitate to go and monkey about with it, but it's attached to a wall 25 feet off the ground. Before I fetch a ladder, is this something I can do myself, would it help to buy one of the cheap satellite realignment gizmos, or should I just call out an engineer?
