if you have one receiver or using one receiver one time, you'll be better with HH motor - you can pickup much more sats

The other post is correct in that it will follow the Clark Belt arc of satellites.
Notice I said "arc"......
It is very important when installing a motorized setup that your vertical mast is 100% plumb. In that way, the satellite will turn exactly on the full arc of the Clark Belt satellite range.

Right now, I get about 4 sats...I need to re-tap the three leveling feet (made of pipe flanges), since they are not quite able to make the support perfectly plumb. I should be able to get about 8 or 10 sats from my (restricted-view) balcony location.
I'll post some photos in a few days.

Using a Stab 90 motor and a SuperDISH mount, with a 0.85m Ku dish.

Also SatBeams footprints come in handy. Select the satellite name (KU band) and click on your location on the google map. It will till you the size of antenna required, and angles.
