Can someone give me the numbers for zip code 36830 for the 5lnb dish(AU9) slimline. Not sure I got the correct ones, thanks in advance

Thanks but that site gives the figures for indivdual sats, I need the numbers for the AU9 that looks at more than one sat at the same time. Can someone that has a newer model reciever put in the zip code 36830 for a dish with the five LNBs(AU9) and let me know what numbers they get for the elevation and tilt and azimuth?:helpme

Isn't elevation & azimuth information available from the receiver you've got attached to the dish?

I seem to recall being able to plug in my zip code and getting the data.

enter the zipcode during the setup process in the directv receiver and the angles are calculated

this will only be a rough calculation. you will need instrumentation to fine tune.

I thought the Slimline (AU9) was initially aligned to the 101 sat, then tweaked from there. :confused:

I installed an AU9 dish a couple of weeks ago and used the receiver az el info from it. I just used the signal meter on the receiver to align and twek the dish, everything came out good.
