Advertisements Just to be sure prior to digging any holes, I would like to confirm my understanding of dish elevation. The actual angle to the satellite is slightly higher than a line perpendicular to the face of the dish, right? The actual satellite feed to the dish is offset in order to avoid blockage by the LNB, right? I want to make 5ft pole with a fixed 43 degree arm - that I can carry around my wooded yard to search for the best dish location that is free from tree tops. With my 5ft pole plumb and with the Azimuth determined (205 degrees) I hope to select a viable location. Naturally, I will allow for years of tree growth. Am I on the right track here?
