    1.9 Dish

    My neighbour and I are having a 1.9 dish with twin LNBs' mounted on his sun terrace. We live in apartments one above the other,but are a little concerned as to where the dish will need to be sited. We have looked from the corner of his terrace and located due south and using a compass have worked out 28.2 degrees east from due south. But we were also told that if we had direct line of sight to the sun at midday then we could mount the dish in that position. Not sure if we have now confused ourselves.

    Can you please help to make it clear to us as complete numpties. My neighbour needs to mount the dish at the North east corner of the terrace, and we assume pointing towards 28.2 degrees, as he cannot place it on the south west side of his terrace. the terrace faces southwest.

    does this make sense?

    please

    many thanks

    Re: 1.9 Dish

    the dish needs to point in the direction of 28 degrees east of south - without a compass you can use the position of the sun at around 11 - 12noon as a rough guide as to where it must point.

    it needs a good clear line of sight - no trees or walls or metal chain link fences.
