Hi Ese,

you need to get the elavation reading  at the lower part of the reflector support behind the antenna.

1. the poirization you need to get from your provider (circular vertical or Horizontal,linear Cross pol or parallel)

2.Azimut should 263
  Elevation ( 42 - the antenna Offset)

What type of antenna do you have  and Modem do you have.

I hope this may Help!
