    Just want to know the exact location of the satellite is.
    My neighbor has Dish network and his Dish is pointing to South East. I live in Connecticut 06108 zip code.
    I thought that the satellite is on the west. If I want to order top 150 what satellite do I have to point to ?
    The system that I ordered is Dish Network 4922
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Go to www.dishnetwork.com and they will have an area you can go to and enter your zip code and they will tell you your azimuth,skew and elevation.You will have to download a small file,works great though. I ordered the same one as you the 4922 through satellite depot,not to happy with their service though.

    Oh no..don't tell me.. I just ordered from them too.
    How long did it take you to get it ? They told me it will take about a week and a half .I called them twice and they were helpful.
    May be you got them on their bad hair day.

    It has been about a week and a half,I called them yesterday and they said they have it in their warehouse and they should ship it next week. I then said I should get it next week and he said yes, then said probably week after next.I also asked about the webb site saying it will be shipped as soon as they get the credit accepted which was the last week in march,but the guy said they are behind because of all the orders,why then did it say available on the webb site? I guess that is possible though. Will have to wait I guess.I am sure they already charged my c.c. Nice guy though.You can e-mail me if you have anymore questions,or when you get yours.

    Nick,
    For the Top150 you point your dish 500 between the satellites positioned at 110 degrees and 119 degrees.

    Ok. I'm totally clueless about this thing. Bear with me.
    So, 110 and 119 degree is located on South East on the Compass right ?
    What confuses me is that I thought the Dish network satellite is located on the west.

    Go to www.lyngsat.com and they have the exact positions of the satellites. From your location, they are southwest on the compass.
