Dish alignement in Canada

Turn your dish to the south. If you use a compass, the reading should
indicate: 190.4°. Set the polar elevation to 40.82°. The measurement is done
on the elevated part of the mount. Next, go down in the apex elevation for
6.5°. Usually you find this alignement tool on the top of the mount with a
reading of +/-10°. If you now measure the elevation of your dish, you get a
reading of 34.32°, which is fine for Timmins, Canada. Your dish should now
travel on the right track. If you have a Ku-band LNB, it would be much
easier, because nearly to the true south of your location you could find at
80°W the Satcom K2 and after proper alignement, you should see a signal from
this Ku-band satellite.
