Hi again
I am stuck in the installtion on motorised dish.

I have fixed the ELEVATION for the motor to 33 degree (hotbird 3) but i do not know what degree to fix the DISH elevation.


I read somewhere this formula to work out. i.e.

Dish Elevation=A-(B-C)
A= ?? (reading provided by the motor manufacturar)
B= 60 (Constant)
C= 33 (Motor Elevation) 33 degree (Hotbird 3) Stoke-On-Trent

How would I find the Manufacturer provided reading? I have mailed them last week but no answer from them YET.

Is there any way to work out dish elevation OR I do not need it???

The motor elevation is to do with your latitude and not any specific satellite. This is so that the arc is correct for your area.
