Can anyone tell me where the Voom Satelite is located? Actually What I need to know is what direction a Dish for Voom in East Providence, RI would need to point. Coordinates will be useful, but knowing exactly whether or not the dish needs to point North, South, East, West, etc...would be more useful.

Thanks in advance. :D

North :confused: Now that's funny!!!

All satellites for home TV use are located South-East To South-West. Unless you are on the Equator and it is East-Above Yor Head-West or in the Southern Hemisphere where the satellites are North-East to North-West :)

The Azimuth for your location (basically all of Rhode Island) is 161 degrees South-South-East

The Elevation for your location (basically all of Rhode Island) is 40 degrees

Can this be the azimith and elevation for New Hampshire also?

It would be close, but not exact.

Is Concord close enough?

Azimuth-165
Elevation-39
