Satellite dish elevation Calculator

See this figure

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to give satellite elevation and azimuth and Earth position information for determining the line of sight (LOS) for optimal communications. The area is the Western Hemisphere. The satellites are positioned approximately 22, 300 miles above the equator in a geostationary orbit. Actually, the satellites are traveling from west to east, but on Earth, they appear as stationary because they match the exact speed of the Earth's rotation. This calculator determines the azimuth and elevation angle based on a given city and state. The latitude and longitude will be displayed for that city as well as the satellite position. Be aware that azimuth is based on true magnetic north. You must adjust your compass to accommodate the magnetic deviation for your area. Remember to add or subtract your magnetic deviation based on the simple rule for aviation and navigation, East is least, and West is best, meaning if your location is east of magnetic zero then your actual compass heading is less than the true reading. Therefore you will have to add the magnetic deviation difference to determine the true azimuth. If you are west of zero, you will need to subtract it.
