I am installing an Eagle Aspen Multi-satellite triple LNB Dish. I have looked at dishpointer to get elevation and asimuth but it does not give me dish tilt in a form i can understand or relate to on the scale on my dish mount.

I am using this for SD Tv.

Where can i find tilt angle (rather than LNB skew which i can get when i use coordinates on several dish pointing sites)?

"dish skew" = tilt.
I just loaded my address and DirecTV 5 LNB and get the correct numbers.

Elevation: 40.1°
Azimuth (true): 149.9°
Azimuth (magn.): 135.3°


Dish Skew: 112.8°

Post your zip code & I'll check yours

OR

You could tune the 101 with the tilt on zero. Reset the meter for 119 and adjust the tilt (skew) until you get a peak signal on 119.

There is less and less material on the 110 & 119 so no biggie unless your locals are still on one of those sats.

very old school,
I only need 110 and 119 satellites so i am told for sd tv. My locals are on 119.
71652:

Elevation: 49.5°
Azimuth (true): 195.3°
Azimuth (magn.): 194.0°
Tilt: 77.3°

72117

Elevation: 48.5°
Azimuth (true): 195.3°
Azimuth (magn.): 194.2°
Tilt: 77.5°

Looking at the dish (in front of it) "no tilt" [level] would be 90°, so "your tilt" would be 12.5° "this way"
and the reading on the dish for tilt would be 77+°
