When I aim my Dish NW I lock on to 119 and 129? What is 129? Seems like I cannot hit the 110/ 119 combo. The skew is set correctly for zip code. Any suggestion what i am doing wrong?

Thanks

You need to turn your Dish to the East a couple of degrees and verify elevation for your zipcode. If your pole is not absolutely straight, you may need to compensate for that with your elevation.

129 is a DISH satellite 10 degrees to the west of 119. 110 is east of 119 by 9 degrees so you are aiming too far west and probably a couple degrees low.
