Find the correct bearing (azimuth) and elevation for the Astra 28.2E satellite from anywhere in the UK and Europe using the useful free tool below provided by Dishpointer. This invaluable aid will help you find the correct satellite without error and achieve accurate DIY Sky dish alignment using a satellite meter and compass.
How to Use the Tool
- Select the satellite required from the top row of the widget
- Enter your location - such as Manchester, UK into the second row and hit the 'Return key'
- Read off the precise dish azimuth and LNB skew angle for your location
You must take into account 'magnetic variation' when using a compass to align a Sky minidish. Hence 5 degrees must be subtracted from the azimuth bearing in the UK to get an exact compass reading.
Aligning a Sky dish accurately is critical for trouble-free viewing particularly when weather conditions are bad as received signal levels are reduced by heavy rain and dish misalignment can become a serious problem.
Always disconnect the signal meter and attach the coaxial cable feeder directly to the dish by securing the F-type plug when alignment is completed.
You will need to fully waterproof the F-type screw-on connectors and the LNB threads with Self Amalgamating Tape after checking that Sky box signal quality. A typical signal quality reading should be 60% or higher in dry weather in most parts of the UK.
When installing a new Sky dish, make sure that the dish is horizontal using a spirit level (if one is not fitted to the LNB arm). A dish which is not horizontal will lead to an incorrect LNB skew angle, reducing performance and rain margin.acceleration in education education personnel blogging in zambia blogging wrap up certificate in special education blog hubspot over blogging definition blogging basics blog hosting sites which of these statements was implied by the decision in brown v. board of education? education networking education rankings by state blog made with react blogging your passion blog name generator hunters education texas shelby county board of education psychology behind blogging blogging of cars blogging questions for students katherine schwarzenegger education how to make money while blogging blogging resume education credit union amarillo america education ranking arizona department of education certification west virginia department of education the education of an idealist states ranked by education michigan education savings program what do you mean by blog zac efron education food blog around the world
