My Satellite Setup
1.8 m CM at SMR 1224 + Elev. with 7 lnb changer Ku (lin - circ) - Ka (lin - circ) C (lin - circ)
My Location
Nijmegen Netherlands
I am unable to pick up sats west of 0.8 due to loss of line of sight. I can get 54% on 1 west but thats because approx 70% of the dish is visible on that satellite. When attaching digital level to pole, the east/west is off 0.2 degrees on left side and 0.1 degree on the right side. But overall I would say there is plumbness east/west. The turnbuckles on the east and west of the pole are fine.

@a33 thanks for that. Need to buy an inclinometer to set the angle. Is there a particular one to get for satellite dishes?
seems you already have such thing !!

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I would invest in a cheap satellite meter/finder rather than an inclinometer.
