Hello friends

I'm at 37.436491 N     121.892885 W
Which way do I point my 30" dish to get satellite 97 west

Is it to the left of 110-119 dish network?
Can anyone help with this please ?
Thank you
Sam

Biggest mistake most people make plugging the numbers straight in, without actually reading the instructions - specifically, where it mentions the minus sign (-). Or where it says to use decimal degrees instead of DMS. Numbers representing west longitude and south latitude must be preceded by the minus sign. Try again, see if you have better luck, and don't forget in this cast - - that both you AND the satellite are west longitude.

Or is the problem that you've found the satellite but can't get any transponder signals? A lot of stuff on IA5 looks like FTA, and you're not going to get that with DishNetwork hardware.
