Hello folks, I just wanted some info. I live in a condo in toronto and face east. I know i can't get any local signal, however i see other homes in my arear that face south east. What I'm wondering is, what the heck they're picking up? If its europe, I want in!! Does anybody know? thanks!

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 :) and we are pleased to help you.

Best regards, Eric.
