Antenna Pointing Tool

This page may be used to determine antenna pointing coordinates given a lat/long position within view of the satellite. Either manually enter the lat/long in the boxes provided and click on the 'calculate' button, or click on the map to get a rough estimate. In either case, the azimuth and elevation are then calculated. Note that when you click outside the globe none of these calculations will be performed, and the boxes will be left blank.

Note: you can switch between the Antenna Pointing and Coordinate Determination tools by making a selection below.

Note that the map data used to draw the world is from 1995! Calculations are performed for a mean sea level altitude, and use the nominal positions of the satellites!
