I forgot to mention that next month is sun outage time. At a certain day and time the sun will be at the same position in the sky as the satellite. No need to guess where the satellite is. This will tell you if it will work or not.

Also look up slimline mods I have one and it works pretty good on some but not on all satellites. Just depends on which satellite you aim your dish at.

I used dishpointer on their website which includes google and it was very accurate. You can move the pointer/balloon to where the tree is and it will give you the height that you need to have view to the sat. Just remember that trees will grow taller, at least most at the time.
I never tried the phone app.

Modifying a dish is properly left to the experienced user.
I agree that simplifying your first setup will result in quicker success.
That said, certain commercial dishes don't take much more than understanding to fire up.
eg: DirectTV World dish, or a discarded DishNetwork SuperDish.
(existing LNB is fine)
Mention any you have access to, and we might find a winner.
