Now that 12.5 West is in an inclined orbit I thought it might be useful to have a little chart that tracks the inclination over a 24 hour period. I have attached a chart below the presents the change in elevation per hour.

At the moment, 12.5 West is only 0.29 degrees inclined and adjustments to a satellite dish are probably not required. However as the level of inclination increases in the future, adjustments may be required to a satellite dish to keep a lock on any signals present.

I hope the chart has some use or amusement value to the satellite feed men.

Update:

At the moment, 12.5 West is just over 0.5 degrees inclined. Some adjustments to a satellite dish may be required to keep a lock on any signals present.

I hope the chart has some use or amusement value to the satellite feed men.
