When using a Dish500 for single bird pickup, always set the skew to 90, and adjust your aim 4.5 degrees east (due to the offset of the two-eye Y-adapter).

60517 = Downers Grove IL ( www.usps.com )

Downers Grove longitude = 41.8, latitude = 88.0 ( http://www.epodunk.com/cgi-bin/genInfo.php?locIndex=6077 )

Plug the numbers into Sadoun's dish angle calculator ( http://www.sadoun.com/Sat/Installation/Satellite-Heading-Calculator.htm ) and you get...

elevation 26.5, azimuth 232.5. And don't forget to factor magnetic deviation when using your compass to find it.

Actually ANY Dish receiver have the azimuth and elevation angles - just type your zip code.

None of my receivers have 129 settings yet. I have a 522, 921 and 301. They have the sat location, just no settings for a dish, no matter what size.

Goaliebob... yeah, my dish is 24.5 degrees elevation for 129
