Antenna Pointing Calculator

Longitudes are counted eastwards, 5°W are to be entered as 355°. Southern latitudes are to be entered negative, e.g. -28° for 28°S.

Step 1: Enter Location of Antenna
    Longitude:   ° (degrees)     ' (minutes)     " (seconds)
    Latitude:   ° (degrees)     ' (minutes)     " (seconds)
 
Step 2: Enter Satellite Orbitalposition
    Position in ° decimal:     z.B. 325.5

Note: The results are close approximates, not scientifically correct. However, they should suffice to align a 3.8 m dish antenna. Bear in mind that satellites are not «nailed» onto the heavens.
