A few more specifics please. Is it a satellite internet connection you're after? If so, what are your minimum requirements?

Echostar 3 (Dish Network and Sky Angel) at 61.5 west longitude is approx south-south-east from you, so if you have a wall facing east then you will need to point the dish sideways at about 25 deg away from the wall.

See http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/america.html for satellite and TV programme options.

Pointing data at http://www.satsig.net/maps/lat-long-finder.htm This page also shows a blue line from your house wall, in the direction towards the satellite.

You may get more help at specifically "satellite TV" forums; try searching in Google.

We don't mind you coming here, you are very welcome Smiley and we are pleased to help you.

Best regards, Eric.
