Not to beat a dead horse but, still having problems getting 119 bird. It appears that with my current setup, my line of sight to the 119 bird is obstructed by numerous telephone wires. Would this affect the signal? My 101 comes in OK because the tilt aims the line of sight over all the wires. But the 119 tilts it down right through them.

Mike, Yes, the wires could cause problems. Use the sun and info below to see if you have a clear shot at the 119° satellite. Conversely, if there is shadows on or near your dish, then you may have problems (be sure to account for the sun's angle). Do not use the info for aiming your elliptical dish
