Is there a local place I can pick up an alignment tool in most metro cities? like a radio shack etc?

The morons living next to me pushed my dish about 40% and calling dish they said TWO DAYS to get someone to come realign. I need to get a tool instead of pay them to way extended periods. Plus it would pay for itself after so many fixes.

Thoughts?

Depending on how many Sats your antenna is seeing, you may be able to align it without the "tool." In the days when you did your own installs many of us aligned Dish 500s to get two sats... 110 and 119 in my case. Now with Cell phones you don't even need to lug a TV out onto the roof as I did years ago.

Might get you something until a Tech arrives.
