It runs in my mind that if you type in the zip code in the setup portion of your receiver menu that it displays the skew. I don't have my receiver set up to check this, so I may be wrong.

You are correct but, I would do it from a setup already up and running. It takes forever for a HR or H receiver to get you to a setup screen from a cold start. Just go into the setup menu and change the zip it will give you the number you need write them down and when you get where you are going make the changes to you dish before powering up the receiver. I hope I made sense

He is interested in the skew/yaw numbers not just elevation and azimuth.
