I bought a couple of these 36" dishes and was very impressed with the quality and the heavy duty steel used; however...

In putting one together...... The dishes have elevation tic marks with no elevation numbers? how is anyone supposed to set the elevation on these dishes?

Is there a document posted somewhere that describes the elev marks? This is crazy... it's like a brand new automobile without a steering wheel...

I will actually be posting a video about this shortly. However, for now, here is a video that will hopefully help: YouTube - Assembling the ws9036 satellite dish4.wmv

I want to thank Max from Ideal Satellite Services for making this instructional video.

Hey! everyone, gardenman2002 here. I use a protractor that can be used in bending conduit.
bought mine at menards for about 15 dollars and it comes with a magnetic base.
I find the azimuth with a compass and use the ole protractor to set elevation . I dont worry about the tick marks since there could be errors in manufacturing. Hope this helps.

I mark zero on mark closest to side that will be on post then mark 10 degrees ,20,30,40 etc on every other long mark going toward side that has dish bolted on it using perm marker or mark with sharp metal object (the short marks are 5 degree difference)
