Go to the play store and download the satellite ar app. It will tell you exactly where in the sky the satellite is.

After aiming a dish manually for years and could do it "normally " in under 10 minutes I just broke down and spent $300.00 for a Auto aiming dish and receiver from a great seller on ebay.
worth the investment.

Use the same

I sometimes use the same as MR. Dan, the meter built into the SAT receiver along with the AUDIO BEEP . I send the sound to the outside speakers for the BEEP, turn the sound up so you can hear it at your dish.
When you hit the SAT signal you will hear the beep increase at this time you can use the inexpensive signal strength mete to fine tune the signal.

Good luck

All I've ever used to align our SWM Direct dish is a compass app on my phone and the co-ordinance from dishpointer.com

Took me 15 minutes this past weekend, only about 5 minutes after I realized the power inserter wasn't plugged in.
