    I have an automatic Oyster system so no problems with finding satellites.
    In new area it's sometimes a problem with obstructions, such as trees etc.
    I found an App for the iPhone called SatFinder, v2.5 . It's only £1.49. After choosing your appropriate satellite, you point your iPhone to the sky and a picture of you chosen satellite is superimposed on the screen over your live image. It's really good and a real bargain.

    Impressive thanks.

    I'm working in Somerset and lodging on a country park.
    I've just walked around site and stood behind various dishes and the app accurately reflects that they are all pointing at Astra 28.2 . I don't need the elevation it's always getting the correct direction first that is the key to success :thumb:
