Re: Azimuth, elevation & skew for HDTV

That won't handle a line of site survey. Instead, check individual lines of site for each satellite, 99, 101, 103, 110 and 119 west longitude. http://monsterfm.com/engineering/pointdish.htm is one site for this. Be aware it uses true azimuths rather than magnetic.

Yes, it's there.  Look at the text under the map photo.  Shows "Disk Skew: 66.0 º"

But be sure you're selecting the correct dish. The newer SlimLine HD dish is actually listed as "DirecTV SL3 (99W, 101W, 103W)".  The dish you selected is the older Phase III dish.
