Came across this site and thought it looked quite useful. Not sure if you know about it, but thought would post just in case.

Brilliant tool Kevin, better in a lot of ways than the Swedish Microwave calculator. :)

hi kleefarr,
not used it in anger, but it looks very helpful, i like also the shortcut to lyngsat in the transponder tab.

hi seancorky,
i don't know if this is of interest i pulled it of the home site

Offset satellite dishes are widely spread now. When such a dish is completely vertical, it already has some elevation (~20-25 degrees). You can enter the size of your offset dish (height and width) and the program will calculate the exact elevation for this dish. The calculation is done only for dishes whose height is greater than width. Enter the size of the dish in millimeters. Here you will see the elevation to the selected satellite and the angle you should actually install you dish at (in degrees from the Earth surface).

regards
phil

I got mine for £10 from an electrical wholesalers who was looking to get rid, he had it in stock for some time so he sold it cheap

Its an SLX one, it was spot on
