I have a Sonicview 360 Premier, 90cm Dish, w/Invacom Lmb w/ Sg2100 Motor

My question is, what satellite is closest to a true south axis?


My zip-code is 95242

DOes anyone know if building grids in lodi, CA are on a true N/S axis?

Your Longitude is 121.3°W, so your true south satellite is: 121.0°W EchoStar 9 Ku or 121.0°W Galaxy 23 C.

Check out Dishpointer.com. Your true south sat is your longitude. So 121W Galaxy 23

Elevation: 45.8°
Azimuth (true): 179.3°
Azimuth (magn.): 165.0°
LNB Skew [?]: -0.5°

Steven Van Meter,

Whatever your "site's" longitude coordinate is, the satellite with the nearest orbital location in degrees to that is your best true south satellite.

Steven Van Meter,

That's OK. Don't worry about it too much. If you don't get an answer to your question right away, just be patient. Everyone here wants to help, but sometimes some research is required before an answer is posted and that can take time.

If you don't receive a reply to your post and it seems that your post is getting buried in obscurity, then simply reply to your own post and "BUMP" it up to the top once again. No need to start a new thread as someone will eventually respond. This site is really good about that as ALL the members chime in to help and not just the moderators or staff. It seems that everyone takes an active role here and I assure you that you will receive the best and most accurate information.... The whole staff and the members are GREAT!
