I'm setting up a 90M Channel Master Dish with a SG9120-B motor. I redesigned and made my own mount on the back of my dish. My location is Lat - 37.1° N Long. 84.6° W. If I figure it right, my True South should be pointing in the direction of satellite AMC 16 ku band at 85° W. Is this correct? On my mount I designed, when the face of my dish is completely level 90° to the ground the sleeve that clamps on my motor shows it is at 10-12 degrees so I know that's not correct. I think my other dishes I have when set the same way show about 25 degrees. I think my dish should be pointing upward and I think ther might be a few more satellites further up as in 61 degrees. I will test this out tommorrow, I have a new pole perfectly squared in the ground and I am waiting for the concrete to dry.
