Hi all,

I'm building a new house and want to get DirecTV when it is done. I have to get approval for my dish location by submitting a drawing showing the location of the dish. I used the DirecTV dish pointer and the azimuth came back as 206.6. So that is telling me the degrees from north so it will need to point south-southwest. Am I correct?

Thanks

Yes. Next you need to know if there is line-of-sight access too. (That is no tall trees, etc that block the ability to see the satellite.)

Thanks. Trees are not a problem in the neighborhood I am in.

Just being nosy, but why do you need approval for the dish location? Are you in an HOA?

Even then it will not matter. I have built 2 in HOAs (which I am GLAD to be in) and this is not a legal requirement by a HOA
