How much lower is the 129 satellite as compared to the 110 and 119. I am getting good signal levels on both 110 and 119 but cannot pick up any signal from 129. Signal levels on sat 119 tp 21 is 87.

It depends on your location. I'm in Indiana 119 is about 32. 110 is about 36. And 129 is 26. That's 10 degree elevation difference between 110 and 129.

If you have a no line of sight you could add a 1000.4 Eastern dish to you system. You may still lose out on hd locals. But eastern dish comes in at a much higher elevation.

Zipcode is 32455. I have used dish pointer site but gives me elevation levels that are far from what I am able to lock in on 110 and 119. I am around 50 on the current elevation.

If your elevation is that far off either you are aiming at the wrong satellite, or your mast is not plumb. Make sure the pipe you are putting the dish onto is plumb (level two ways 90* apart). If your pole is not plumb the settings from dishpointer are useless.
