Although not really relevant and won't make a blind bit of difference, if location of latt is 52.17, would you take that as 52.2 with usals being anything above .06 is the next up... if that makes sense:)

Well I guess that it also depends on whether the 52.17 coordinate is degrees and minutes or degrees plus a decimal, as the former would be more like 52.3 on your receiver, whereas the latter would be as you say, 52.2. :)

Either way, with and 80 - 90cm dish, it will probably not be overly important.

Agree, it will make no difference on an 80cm dish with 2 deg beamwidth.

Multimap says: 52:10:11N (52.16968)

As it happens in 'usals' changing from 52.1 to 52.2 shouldn't do nothing but seems to now show a higher quality level on most satellite positions though not that accurate.

Just thought 52.17 is closer to 52.2 than 52.1:)

The technicalities of trying and experimenting ha....
