|Azimuth, Elevation, and Skew Angles
for the Satellites at 110°/119° West Longitude
Azimuth (direction), elevation (angle up), and skew (dish
rotation) angles for the satellites orbiting at 110° /
119° West Longitude may not be available via the Point
DISH and Signal Strength menu.
To use these tables:
First, find your ZIP code or the range of ZIP codes
that includes your ZIP code.
For example, if your ZIP code is 80232, use the angles for
the range of 80200 - 80299, which are azimuth 183°,
elevation 43°, and skew 101°.
Then, use the azimuth (AZ), elevation (EL), and skew
(SK) angles for your ZIP code or range of ZIP codes to
find the satellites. The azimuth angle has already been
corrected for magnetic deviation, so you can use this
number on a compass. The azimuth angles, elevation angles,
and skew angles provided in the table are in degrees.

Code 32 v1.3 Application
ZIP Code 32 v1.3 instructions.
The ZIP Code application was written to assist
customers in obtaining the azimuth (compass heading)
and elevation angle (up/down setting on dish antenna)
necessary to aim their dish antenna to receive a
Version 1.3 adds support for both out new orbital
slot at 110 West Longitude, and for our new DISH 500
dual-focus dish antenna.
NOTE: Do NOT select the DISH 500
option unless you have a DISH 500. Using this
option with one of the DISH 300 dish antennas will
give you the wrong azimuth and elevation numbers.
To use the ZIP Code application, enter your ZIP
Code in the field and select the satellite location=no
