Guy, I see some differences in the pointing angles to EA stalellite depending
where I am getting the number from:

From Satellite Finder / Dish Pointing Calculator with Google Maps | DishPointer.com
Using My address In Ithaca, NY 14850
Elevation: 38.7°
Azimuth (true): 158.3°
Azimuth (magn.): 170.4°
LNB Skew [?]: -15.8° Dish Skew [?]: 90.0°


From DishNetwork Insatllation PDF
Using ZIP: 148XX
Elevation:41 Azimuth:184 Skew:85


There is not much difference in the published elevation angles (<3deg),
However, the differende in the azimuth and skew angles are significant.

What is the source of the difference, which is right?

Peter

So thisis the same as the dishpointer web-based app is telling me.

But the question is why the data publisd in the Dishnetwork PDF file is SO different?
