Hello all,

I am trying to move to a new apartment and want to find if i can view Internation channels on satellite 118 from my house.

Is there a way i can find the angle needed for this satellite to check with my compass. I know we need to have line of sight in south-west but need more details to check.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

virtually the same pointing as 119. If you have a dish receiver already, go to dish pointing, plug in your zipcode and select dish 300 and satellite 119. It will give you all the required angles.

If you are using a D500+ or D1000+ per thelist it shows
118.7°W Anik F3 Ku
elevation 37.2°
azimuth 243.2°
dish skew 47.9°...skew that amount off of 90
