Hi,
I got a free c/ku 10 foot dish with a toshiba trx-2000
I was thinking of going to 4dtv but I may be tree-ed in.
I am surrounded by tall trees, and have about 60 degrees oven sky above and
some to the south.


As I understand it, you have to see G1 first to get programming, but I may
have a tree in the way.

I was using http://www.satsig.net/ssazelm.htm
with G1 at -133
and my lat/long is 30.34 and -97.74

Calculator says 234 degrees and 38 degrees elevation

What is the best way to make a pointer to see if tree is in the way, compass
and protractor?
Would tree have to be completly out of the way?
Can I visually track a planet for a while and get an Idea?

The receiver vidio output is squirly, has some bits stuck or something, but
the menu seems to work and about 1/2 of the letters are right.

Thanks in advance for any advice
GGGTTTTTTTT

You don't have to have no trees,but it helps!I have trees,a house,a school
and hill (some distance away) and I still get G1!

If you get a compass with a degrees ring,you can line up the pointer for
north,use the ring to find G1,then use your arm to approxiamte the
direction.Works for me.

You need G1-03 for hits and the IPG,as well as channel maps(although I have
read you can dowload them from other sats ie: G0)...

btw: If the tree in the way is on YOUR property,chop it down! LOL
