    Default relation between dish elavation an satellite


    hi guyz,i was wondering fi there is a simpler way of setting a dish instead of using elevation angles.my thinkin was is there any way such that if u want to lock a satellite may be at 62 degrees east one can mark the inclination tube in measurement i.e centimeters or millimeters.so that for any satellite u need one just adjusts the tube to lock it.mmmh.just a thought.

    Yes George it will work. First get the elevation right and then measure in centimeters or millimeters. If you want extremely measure it in Nano meters. All the best George.

    Hi georgewamba,that was avery good thiought,but i think you missed it abit,for you to mark the,the inclination tube,may be interms of centimeters or millimeters,you must have, done the the inclinination using elevation angles ,remembers these things your geographical location,will not always give you the same inlination as mine,I think the simpler way is to use inclinometer instead of thinking interms of centimeters.Just my opinion!.Be blessed this morning.
