    I purchased the Mitsubishi HDTV sat box with the oval dish. I could not get the 119 satellite with more then 40% signal strength. I have purchased another standard dual line dish to point at the 119 and leave my old Sony dish pointed at the 101 and then using the new multi switch that came with it to combine the signals. What I am confused about is the location of the 119 dish.
    My coordinates for aiming the 101 dish are azimuth 224.7 and elevation of 38.8.
    Is the 119 satellite 18 degrees west of the 101 so my new settings would be azimuth 242.7 and elevation of 38.8 stays the same or due I add 18 degrees to the elevation and make it 56.8 elevation?
    Please help its raining here now but I want to be up and running when the rain stops I have only been working on this for two weeks now and have cut down trees moved the pole etc.
    Thanks
    Scott

    Scott,
    Go to DBS forums website (http://www.dbsforums.com/azel.html) to determine the az and elev to point your dish. Both values will change!!
