I am having a tough time finding the satellite. According to Mike, the real azimuth is 184(Magnetic 194 due to 10.3 degree deviation). Can someone give me the correct magnetic azimuth and elevation?

Go to the global communications website for the information you need.

Click on the 'Canadian Solution' and then go to the pointing angle page at

It is a tough satellite to find, as you can get fooled by the NBC K-Band signals on GE-1 which will give you a signal level, but will not lock. If you see that you need to go more to the right (from behind the dish looking up). I used a spectrum analyzer from work to set mine up as I got frustrated looking for the signal. Turned out I was looking at GE-1 and that was why I saw signal level but I couldn't get a lock with the receiver. Hope this helps.

"What is the frequency range of the Anki F-1?"


11.7 to 12.2 GHz. This is not the DBS band used by Echostar etc. (12.2 to 12.7 GHz) but is the frequency band used by TVRO/cable/network satellites for their Ku-Band downlinks. That is why you might be looking at the NBC network feed signals from GE1.
