I go to dishpointer website and skew for my location is 25.6.
There is no 25.6 on the 3 LNB directv dish skew on goes to about 35.
When I use the dishpointer app it's say my skew is 66. Is there an
Adjustment I must do like add 11 to get proper skew? Am in Puerto Rico.
Zip is 00719 if that helps. TIA

Did you select the 3 LNB dish on the dishpointer website? Also hover with the mouse over the arrows on the website which gives you an explanation how the skew works.

The skew on the website is absolute value to which you set the markings on the dish. The markings start at 90 degrees when there is no skew. The app tells you BY how much you to skew. So, if markings start at 90 and you should skew by 67 then the resulting marking would be 23 degrees (90-67=23).

Since the skew markings don't go that far on your DirecTV dish, I would assume that you might not be able to receive DirecTV at all in Puerto Rico but that's just a guess - other members here are probably better informed than me.
