This application was developed in order to assist in the alignment of Ku-Band satellite dishes.
It is very easy to use. Simply click on the "Find My Location" button in order to set your current latitude and longitude. Select the satellite you wish to align and then click on the calculate button. The results are shown in E from North. Using a compass this will give you the approximate initial position for your selected satellite.
NB: LNB skew should be set as if you are standing behind the dish looking at the LNB feedhorn
Positioning accuracy when using a 2G iPhone works perfectly well. Although not as accurate as the 3G iPhone, it is only necessary to get a reading of within 5 kms of your target. Even at this range your dish alignment will only be approximately 0.1 out.
