Go to dishpointer.com and enter your zip and select 61.5

General info Elev 43 ,tilt 75, az 149 on a magnetic compass.

72 and 77 birds will be slightly to the right of that location.

The calibration numbers on the dish are not precise enough to guarantee that you can directly dial in the sats just by lining up the numbers, they should get you close but you may need a sat meter for an EA dish if you cannot fish around and find a signal.
