To receive a clear satellite picture, a dish must have the correct vertical (azimuth) and horizontal alignment.Vertical alignment, is the angle of elevation above the horizon whereas the Horizontal alignment of a dish, is the compass bearing the dish will need to point. Correct dish alignment can be helped with the use of Omnisat digital satellite compass.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Magnetic interference from the metal of the dish made this useful as a compass only. moderator note: it is worth reading through the "calibration" section of the instructions included with this item. Calibrating the item correctly for your situation helps minimise intereference and distortion caused by surrounding items in a specific situation.
