Dish Network

I have a Winegard Pathway X2 dish and a Dish network 211Z receiver. What mode should I be using for Alabama (zipcode 35473)?

The choices are:
Mode A: 110, 119, 129 or
Mode B: 77, 72.7, 61.5

Testing this in my yard with partially obstructed southern view.

Thanks

I find it can really vary depending on my site. There is a free app called dish align that I use to decide which I should shoot for, east or west (which is what the 2 modes represent).

99% of the time I am using the 110 group. Sorry, not in Alabama but really should not matter.

Most in south east use the 110,119,129. But if you cannot see them you might could use the others called the south eastern sat.

It's called Eastern Arc (77, 72.5 & 61.5) 110, 119, 129 is Western Arc.
