Azimuth, elevation and skew settings for zip code 89801

My signal was partially interrupted by debris hitting my dish during a wind storm, a second wind storm caused total signal loss and I would like to know where and how to re-aim the dish to restore service in less than the 12 days it will take to get a service technician to my lcation. I would like to know the proper azimuth, elevation and skew settings for zip code 89801.

Enter your zip code, find your dish type in the pull down menu, and you'll see the aiming coordinates.
