Hello, everyone! In the coming days, I hope to install my mount on the pole and the actuator on the mount. I have seen illustrations like this:



I have also seen "East/West of the Mississippi."

I am at 83 degrees West...so I'm pretty close to the dividing line, if 80 degrees is the general rule. I also wonder if 139 is now gone -- no feeds, nothing?

I have a clear view of the arc 30W (or maybe even a tad lower) - 139W. With all of this in mind, where would you recommend I mount the (24") actuator? Thanks for your advice!

I'm at the same, 83. Everyone around here puts theirs on the right side. I have always put mine on the right side and have had no issues going from 139 to about 40.
I hit a tree line there. If you can see lower than 30(No C-Band on 30) you may consider the left side though. :)
Nothing on 137 and we are out of the footprint for 139 AL. MUX.
