Hi I've had DirecTV for eight years and the trees in my yard are starting to do me in. I can't hit the DirecTV HD satellite. So I'm looking at going with Dish. Well I know I can hit the 110 and 119. I can't hit the 129 because of a tree. I got excited when I saw that Dish also uses the 61.5 satellite. I at first thought it was 61.5 east which of course I have no tree in sight but I knew that couldn't be right. If I stand due South and I see the 110.w, 119.w and 61.5w on the compass housing that is where these sats are located in the sky right? So 61.5 is closer to due east than 110? Or it is off to my left standing due south where it says 61.5 on the housing of the compass. Please help I don't want to go back to cable.
Go here. Take a pin and stick it into your monitor where you would live on the map and then plot it from there. I guess you don't really need a pin, you could use your finger? Or use a magic marker. Anyway, try this link that tracks the echo3 bird... http://www.lyngsat*com/tracker/echo3.html
