I want to direct my dish to capture the Hispat satellite at 30 degrees west.

What is 30 degrees west is it 30 degrees west of north? I assume that this must be the convention.

Pls answer so that I can set up the dish tomorrow

THanks

Hispasat is 30 degrees West of South, all satellites are situated on the clarke belt, so they are geostationary over the equator.
