I want to use a dish 500 to get bev in Tampa fl area. I have a Coolsat with another dish 500 and I get 110 and 119 on it. I need to find the skew for sats 82 and 91. When I go to the sites and try to get the skew, non of the number are what is on the back of my dish 500. The skew numbers there go from 40 -140. The skew that I get for bev are -1.3 and 15.2. Thanks for the help.....Black3

The calculator at https://www.satsig.net/ssazelm.htm will give you the correct polarisation angle.

Start with the feed set to nominal horizontal or vertical, as required, and then, while facing towards the satellite, turn the feed clockwise (for positive polarisation angles) by the specified number of degrees.

You may find specific help for your particular equipment at a satellite TV forum.  Try the Google Search link at the top right corner of this page.

Best regards, Eric.
