    Question Azimuth and point angle for 129 using DISH 500 second dish

    Live in the L.A. area, where the 129 signal is not so good for the DISH 1000. Thought I might try my number two dish, currently pointed at 148, for 129, since I will have no need for 148 now. Having trouble finding a chart for determining the azimuth and point angle for 129, for zip 92802.



    Any help appreciated.

    Just enter 129 manually and select L.A. It gives me elevation 48.9 and Azimuth 198.7.

    I wonder why 129 has never been added to the E* angle calculator built into their receivers.

    No kidding. It's been active for so many months now and the receivers don't have the angle calculator. I think they expect you to use the D1000 if you want to see 129.

    Probably a dumb question, but wouldn't the elevation be the same for 110, 119, and 129 with 129 being a little further west than 119? So the elevation used for 119 should work with the 129, right? I don't think the skew would matter much since you are trying to pick up one sat.

    Like I said, this is my amateur understanding of how Dish works so please correct me if I am wrong.
