Hello again,

Have my T90 mounted and now it's time to find some satellites, I used the Satlex site for the toroidal dish, i gave my Lat 55.7353 and long 97.8633 and the satellites I wanted Nimig 2 over to Anik F3 40 degree spread, lots of satellites between the two.
Problem is, the elevation comes back in at -39 degrees, I assume the horizontal is 0 degrees, so, how can this be, I baffled again.
Need help!
Maybe it's supposed to +39

When you use the calculator be sure to put a minus (-) sign in front of your longitude like this -97.86 because the calculator is using east instead of west.
