Dish Alignment
 
Three important parameters are required to correctly align a motorized c band (TVRO) dish for viewing the entire satellite arc or Clarke Belt.

1. Azimuth Angle (True South/Not Magnetic South);

2. Elevation Angle;

3. Declination Angle;

Use a compass to point your dish south and use the chart below to find your "modified" polar mount elevation and declination angle.

Once you start locking satellite transponders, fine tune your azimuth, elevation and declination angles until you peak all satellite signals. Lock down your dish.

For more information, please consult our Comprehensive Guide to C Band Satellite Installation.
