We're certainly getting better at it. We've got two different apps we're going to use this trip so we're hoping it will be quick and painless.

good to know that i usually just have to swing it left/right if i get it in the ballpark with the compass. I think the baby monitor will help with the signal viewing on-screen too..

And yes ! the faster things can get done, the better.
i wonder if blackberry has any aps for sat viewing ?
