Ok...so the wife has agreed to let me go forward with the purchase:devil: :devil:

What I need to know is how do I figure out where the satellites are using the compass to see if I have a clear line of sight????

For instance, if the satellite is orbitting at 110 degrees west longitude, sould I just see if I have a clear view of wherever 110 degrees is on the compass?????

Thanks again.

Ok...think I have answered my own question...using the sat finder....the azimuth is the vertical axis so that is what to use but what does the t and m stand for as there are two azimuth readings????

Thanks again

The line of sight to KU Band satellites is the same as line of sight to the C-Band satellites they are all on the Clarke Belt. Many satelllites do C and KU!


t = true

m= magnetic
