Should I expect the same reception with the "Slimline" dish as what I had with my "3 LNB" dish? They are mounted in the same location? Priviously I was in the mid-90's, on sat 101, now it is only mid-70's, is there some sacrifice to get sat's 99 and 103? Or is it just poorly aimed?

Yes, you should see relatively the same signal strength.

It is poorly aimed.
So if I plug in the Lat/Lon coordinates from my GPS, into the HR20 will that give me accurate settings for the best place to start my aiming?

Yes, but your GPS is a lot more precise than the input screen to the HR20 allows for. No decimal minutes (as far as I could see). Just full degrees should work fine, then trim it up.
Certainly the GPS is more acurate than the HR20's screen, but the Lat/Lon input is MUUUUCH more accurate than a simple 7 digit zip code. That area could be a couple of hundred square miles.

Using the Lat/Lon has moved my azimuth from 138* to 152*, I suppose that's why a signal meter is still the most accurate;) .

But I have a compass, Wife, HR20 signal indicater, and a 12' ladder:D
