How do I determine the rough tilt angle setting for a Slimline. I don't have an HD receiver yet but had to replace my old antenna that was damaged. Decided to install the Slimline 5LNB antenna now rather than have to replace my old one twice. I'll be going to HD in a month or two. Is there a link that gives the angles based on my zip code of 77583?:confused:

5 lnb pointing co-ordinates

General pointing co-ordinates for Houston Tx DMA which should give you the right general direction are:

Azimuth -188
Elevation - 55
Tilt - 81

To find the proper tilt you need to put it on zero and tune in the 101. then adjust the tilt untill you have the peek for the 119. Once you have that, lock the tilt down.

Thanks doctor J! Those numbers worked great. Just had to do some slight fine tuning from there.

Congratulations!

Glad it worked!
It's a great feeling to get the dish aimed and good signals.
