I have a dtc100 and want to put up the dish that has been in my garage for a year to get the 119 degree sat stuff. I need the aiming information for my location and the 119 degree sat (I'm in Bellevue Wa - lat 47 deg). There must be a site somewhere that provides this stuff so a pointer will be much appreciated.
Thanks to all
Jim

Jim,
I think www.dbsdish.com has a finder for you. Now the bad news - is your extra dish a leftover from a "regular" DirecTV installation? I understand that the LNB's are different for the bird at 119 West. So yours may not work. You may need to investigate this situation.

I do not think that the LNBs are different on the 119 bird. Of course, I could be wrong too.

The 119 bird LNB is the same. Infact the DTC-100 dish comes with two regular RCA LNBs. A single LNB Sony, RCA, Panasonic, etc. will work as well.

I read something...it was that the third LNB you can add to the oval dish was the odd one for the 110 bird. Sorry for any confusion.

Here's the link: www.dbsdish.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000479.html
