After very enjoyable meetings and discussions at HAMRADIO, Friedrichshafen, I am now ready to setup my ground station. I have 1.1m Triax dish for receive, which i believe should give me good receive performance.
I have checked on BATC web site for antenna elevation and bearings - I have also an app on my phone which gives me bearing and elevation information too. My question is, how accurate does your dish alignment need to be...? from calculations, my bearing is 148.3 degrees and an elevation of 26.6 degrees - how much tolerance will i have here ? is it just a case of finding the sat and fine tuning for peak signal...?
