Determining AZ/El/Skew For 121 (1 Viewer)

Hi Guys,
Well, it looks like I will need to move my Poor Man SD over to the 121 bird for when my locals come on in Dec. The only problem is, I can't find a AZ/EL/Skew calculator that has E*9 on it. :/

I manually type in the location and my lat/lon into Sadoun, but it gives me a skew of +29. That seems very high to me. The AZ/EL seem right on, but the skew does not. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I don't know if this will help you or not. I got this from a friend at Dish Network. :)

I posted this a few week ago for our Pub Members who donated to keep the board running. :D

:) A nice little utility, but doesn't quite meet my needs. It confirms my AZ/EL readings, but the skew is specially designed for Superdish in that one.

I need an accurate skew for a FTA ku lnb.

(Yeah, Yeah, I'll register...just give me time.) :)

I used: http://www.sadoun.com/Sat/Installation/Satellite-Heading-Calculator.htm

You have to manually look up your magnetic offset on their map (or just use the dish one), but it does give the proper set up otherwise.

Note there is a spot down about the middle of the page where you put in the zip code to get long/lattitude.

Thanks mike. I will use Sadoun's numbers. I just felt that the skew number was high. My LNB only has markings up to +/-20.

(And look..I'm registered now.)
