    Aiming BEV - New York

    Looking to verify the correct elevation, skew, etc for a Candian Bell ExpressVu Dual LNB dish. The old single LNB parabola ripped off the dish during a storm and the new dish/receiver is HD. Using SW21, etc...

    Also, Using a SatHawk. From what I understand I should use Nimiq 1 and 3 to test and direct not through the SW21...

    Any help is always appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Update

    Got it working... The issues were as follows:

    In looking up the settings I got three setting variations using various sites:

    205.1145/39.77418/100.6
    192.188611/42.201281/100.6
    198.62/40.97/100.6

    I figured roughly 206/40/100 would do the trick and I got SS but not PQ on 91. Got 82... I also got DirecTV coming in well...

    I was told by folks to just adjust up but couldn't get anything... I went from 40 all the way up and nothing. Was then told oh move to like 196, 96 and 42, then 44, then 48. Again, I swept the sky at 30-48 and couldn't get the right satellites...

    Out of frustration I moved the dish more like say Azimuth 180 with 96-100 skew and had the elevation way up and my SatHawk blipped as I did. I set to about 50 elevation and it found 91 and had high PQ and then I tuned it in for SS.... Nobody had me anywhere near this... And the original dish (lost in a storm) was more in line with what info the sites gave me...

    So for NYC you get signal pointed where you think it should be from everything you are told but it will be really reading EchoStar really well and you do need to go higher but also drastically more east than DirecTV.

    I was able to lock it with 96 SS and 99 PQ on 91. 82 was not nearly as good SS but everything worked.

    You should be able to use a standard Bell/Dish Network 20" dish.

    Please post your results if you are able to get Nimiq 4 (82w) from New York City, including what size dish you used...
