hi there

i'm new to this game and need advice regarding setting the angles of my dish

i live near glasgow and my lat. position is 55.52.41

my long. position is 3.55.50 w [-3.9307]

there are two gauges on my dish

one reads from 0-10

the other 0-65 degrees.

what should i set these gauges to for my location

any advice greatly appreciated.

If you are speaking of the elevation scale on the dish bracket, then it will depend on which satellite you wish to target as to what the setting should be. :)

Is this a fixed Dish?

hi rolf

thanks for the reply.

i have a motorised system although my actuator is not functioning.

sending away for a new one.

i managed to get hotbird today so the dish is set on that at the moment.

Oh well, looks like you've found a good one as a temporary measure. :)
