Look Angle Calculator

This tool helps find obstacles, such as trees and buildings, between a satellite dish installation location and an orbiting satellite. Type in ANY street or city address (globally), and the look angle calculator will zoom into an overhead aerial view of your installation location and draw a line showing the compass heading toward the satellite. It will also list the elevation angle (aka “look angle”), so you can locate a perfect installation location.

All that is needed is the satellite’s name (or its “longitude”), and any installation address worldwide.

  • Elevation: is how high from the horizon the satellite is (90° is vertical)
  • Azimuth (magn): is simply the compass heading to point the dish toward
  • LNB Skew: is used for installers in fine tuning the LNB radio axis
  • Your Location: are the GPS coordinates (in decimal form) of the address
