    1. It seems that you may have given me the incentive to give details of other methods of acquiring C1 details, but the document provided should still be accurate enough so long as you are using a later model tuning meter.

  1. Thanks for the basic satellite angle setup spreadsheet. Do you have a spreadsheet that calculates the LNB skew angle also?

    1. Dirk,
      There is a C1 Satellite Bearings document on the site. All setup details are provided for most major towns around Australia. Due to the LNB skew not being absolutely critical the town nearest you will suffice, then you could fine tune. In fact if you have not moved far since using your satellite the same LNB skew from previous location will probably still suffice.
