Default Eastern & Western Arch dish pointing

Where does one go to get skew info for aiming HD dish for the Eastern Arc and Western Arc. I have been able to use the Dish 500 skew numbers for the Western Arc. However there seems to be nothing for the Eastern Arc.

Dishpointer has a good application. However, since I often take my camper to locations that have no services it is not convient. I was hoping for a more portable solution like the instalation section on the receiver that uses ZIP code. As second choice a program I can run on laptop or app for cell phone.

What antena do you have? If you have a 1.4K or a 1.2K you should be able to download the installation manual. The manual has the zip codes for the contiential US. Find the zip code and the settings are listed.

Do a google search 1000.4 dish Installation or 1000.2 dish installation. Either will bring up a page where you can get a pdf of the installation instructions.
For 1.4K -- http://www.montanasatellite.com/manu...structions.pdf

For 1.2K -- http://www.satelliteone.com/support-...tion_Guide.pdf
