Is this what you are looking for? Click on the satellite of interest.
In addition, after you click on a satellite, a world map will appear with the location of the satellite and of course all of them will be on the equator. You can click on the map at the location you are at and information on azimuth and elevation will be provided. Note that the elevation given will be higher than what the elevation one would set your satellite dish at because of the physical geometry setup of the dish.

Half-right. The D* and E* offset dishes SEEM to look lower than they do, but the elevation scale on the dish mount is calibrated to account for that.
Note that the elevation given will be higher than what the elevation one would set your satellite dish at because of the physical geometry setup of the dish.
