larryo, you'll need to go here to get the azimuth/elevation/skew data for the Nimiq birds:
The Shaw Direct Sat finder, second to last on this page, will work for you:

It's an audio style meter, which I actually prefer to the analogue meters. It frees up your eyeballs for tweaking the dish.
Bell is not RV friendly when it comes to their Sat installations and typically will not offer much in the way of support.
