Pointing the damn thing
FTA Newbie, with a dish pointing question:
I used to subscribe to StarChoice. I still have a SC elliptical dish which is pointed at the SC birds. I cannot figure out what that compass point is. I think it is 217W, but the helpful folks at SC cannot give me a straight answer.
Anyway, I never could subscribe to BEV because my house is in the way. I believe from reading these threads that the BEV birds are at around 119W. If this is the case, then my SC is pointing even further west, which is great because I have an unobstructed view directly west.
Can someone confirm that my thinking is correct. And if so, what can I pick up from, say, 217W to 275W... anything interesting on the FTA side?
The great thing about this FTA equipment is that it is not expensive, however I don't want to spend the cash unless I know it is worth it. And I suppose I cannot use my existing SC dish, but could I at least use the mount? And lastly, any word on current or future HD availability for FTA?
Sorry for so many lame questions. I appreciate any help you can give me.
