    I have a 1.2m dish with a DTVAHKAKUKIT. I have 101 and 103 working but cant get 99 to work. So I did some experimenting and found out that if I move the skew to 109 I get 103 and 101 together. If I rotate the skew to 70 I get 99 and 101. What am I doing wrong?

    Your elevation setting could be wrong. When you change the skew it rotates through the other sats.

    Make sure the mast is perfectly plumb and the elevation is set for your location.

    It does sound like you might try a skew/tilt of 89.5 and a tweaking of the AZ & EL would get what you want.
