Right there with you

I use a Suunto Tandem Inclinometer


They are great until you leave it at home or at the last customer's home,

Try........if you know straight up = 90 degrees and straight out = 0 degrees then half way between the two is 45 degrees. Compare that to the el for your zip. This gets you close enough to clear trees & buildings. Do the az from a nearby house or map (or a compass) and you can decide how much closer to measure. You know az, el & tilt from working in the area.

Ok....take 3.....so i finally got around to calling back D*,(very busy at work lately) and here goes,
I spoke to a third tech guyand told him I need a new slimline 3lnb, the one that specifically picks up 99,101,103....the tech said "oh yes, we just released that dish. let me guess you dont have LOS on 119?" I said thats exectly it. So, he changed my order and specifically said to me that I would be getting that dish.

So what does everybody think my chances are that the installer actually comes out with the correct setup for me?

Less than 5%

Sorry.

For whatever reason the roll out of the SL3 LNBs is going ridiculously slow.

I don't know your area, but if you were here it would not be a problem. Half of our jobs call for KaKu3 and we do have them.
