    There used to be an online calculator that you could put your lat/long into and it would tell you when the sun would be in the exact position as the DirecTV satts, or would be at the same elevation or azimuth as the specific satt you were looking for.

    This was a great tool to see if trees would be an obstruction or if you had a clean shot, without having to install the dish and point it.

    Does anybody have it bookmarked or know what I'm talking about? I've searched Google and have no luck.
