My elevation angle (northern VA) is near 45 degrees, so for me, I get a lot less weather between the dish and the satellite. EA is way better for me.

This answer depends upon where you're located. Go for the highest elevation angle.

Thanks Northern MI. for me,not sure what my angles are.

I don't have a zip, but I guessed at 48003 by Googling "northern MI" and put that into Dishpointer.com. WA has an elevation angle of 28.7 deg. EA has an elevation angle of 39.3 deg. I don't know where 48003 is, though. Is that close enough?

Wait, what? Isn't that a New York zip?

Anyhow, for that zip, WA is only at 24.3 deg, while EA is 42.7 deg. Scott makes a good point. If you want your locals delivered via satellite, you may have no choice.

Thanks, will check locals. Looks like 61.5 and 72 are the highest.

EveryNY zip I've seen starts with a 1.

I just had a new roof put on and I moved the dish I wasn’t about to put holes in the new roof. I installed it on the Facia and I have nothing but clear sky in front of it. The old spot sneaked through some trees.. Do I need to reinstall the side arm supports to the mast ? And what is the best signals I should look for. I am on the Eastern Arc .
