Use Dishpointer.com and enter your address, use the picture option and play around. it will show you anything in the way.oldengineer said:My roofs peak line is at about 250 azimuth. The roof is 36 feet wide. The 5LNB dish sits at the right rear corner of the house. There is a tree line which runs almost parallel to the peak up the right side of the house. I've got a leaf problem with the 119 satellite, which is at azimuth 247 from my home in Estern PA. I had a DTV tech and supervisor in today. I wanted them to move the dish to a front corner, in effect moving the dish 30 feet towards the south (250 - 90). My reasoning was that the satellites are 26000 or so miles away and that there would be no parallax correction required for a 30 ft move. The dish would be clear of the trees and 119 would be good again. The guys said no, that if they moved the dish "left" 30 feet it would have to be repointed to the right and that 119 would would still be fouled by trees.
I said OK. There are 2 trees that are too close to the house that should be removed and this will fix the problem. On top of that I only get HDNET and ESPN2HD from that satellite and I can live without the DeuceHD until football season, but I'm curious. Are these guys right? Seems to me like its a trig problem where the angular change will be arctan 30ft/26000mi and thats a pretty small angle. What am I missing here?
