I been going back an forth between g10 and T5 adjust one sat the other gone.

What is my true south deg.
What am I do wrong that i losing the satellites ?
Thank El
I get the below info, the Magnetic Deviation is a ball park guess at -13 follow Boba's advice there : )

True South satellite is at 158 W you will have to check the link below to get the closest live satellite to 158W.


I get your total elevation at 65.4 deg.
distance to satellite at 36290km
And with a guess of -13deg magnetic deviation
so you would point at around 167deg on a compass. still looking for your true south satellite. I would put on a dbs LNB and try for E* 1 at 148deg West. to get in the general area.
Hope this helps!
