Dish Elevation, Azimuth and LNB Skew

Elevation is measured from the horizon upwards. If it gives a negative value then the satellite is below the horizon, i.e. it’s physically not possible to receive that satellite.
Azimuth (true) is positive clockwise and measured from True North. When using an uncorrected compass (and not the pointing line) you will need to use the Azimuth (magnetic) value.
LNB skew is positve anti-clockwise when facing the dish and is a theoretical value, in practice it may differ.
Dish skew is for multi-lnb setups. 90° means the dish is horizontal. The rotation direction for values smaller or greater than 90° depends on the embossed scale of the particular dish but as a general rule, the rotation is always in the direction of the pointing line.
