Howdy,

In case I decide to put my direct dish up when I move, is there an online tool to help figure out angle/azimuth other than the one I list below? My current dish allows me to see 3 birds (101, 110 and 119 I believe) so I have to take that into consideration. I tried using http://www.sadoun.com/Sat/Installation/Satellite-Heading-Calculator.htm and input 110 since it is in between 101 and 119. Will that work?

Thanks!

if the skew and elevation are right, go for the 101 cause if i said it once i said it 1000 times, it wont lock and no readings till you hit the core 101.

how far are you moving?

Thanks to all for the info! I'm moving down about 50 miles westbound. From zip code 95709 to 95818. Trying to see if I can do the install myself as I don't want to lose my HD LA feeds as I may get all channels OTA down in sacramento. By the way, how well do the directtv OTA antennas work?
Thanks again to all!
