Re: Tree obstructing DirecTV Dish

It's kind of hard to see how the dish is aimed, but it looks to be pointed a bit high. The line of site to the satellite can't be higher than 45 degrees above the horizontal, and is probably less.

If the dish was not aimed properly OP would not be getting a signal at all. There is little tolerance with the new multi satellite dishes for mis alignment.

In MA the 101 satellite is about 32 degrees elevation, which is the highest elevation in the Eastern US. THis looks like a SL5 LNB so it has 119 which is lower on the horizon.

However this is an offset dish so the dish appears to be pointing higher than it actually is.
