You need about 45 degrees on each side, although most people may only go to about 30 degrees to each side of due South.

Well on my angle range it is from 53 east round to 45 west, so if your wall is facing south west you will need to put your dish right on the eastern corner or you will miss all the goodies on the Astra sats, Hotbird, etc, etc.

Nearly all the best sats are on the eastern side, still that's Sod's Law.:D
