Satellite dish pointing Lagos, Nigeria, West Africa

It should tell you your latitude and longitude as well as the feed polarisation angle (needed only for linear polarisation operation) and the dish azimuth and elevation pointing directions.

Best regards, Eric.

Eric thanks a million fold. It was very interesting, clear and straightforward. I got all that I needed.

But I didn't see Express 3A under the drop down menu for pointing angles to satellite orbit longitude. I have another site pointing to this satellite in Lagos also or has the name been changed is represented by any other.
Thanks.

I've added Express 3A or A3 at 11 west to the pull down menu and made a few other changes.

If any satellite names are wrong please say.  Just go by the orbit position numbers in the meantime.

Best regards, Eric.
