Azimuth and Elevation

Azimuth and Elevation

What is Azimuth and Elevation? How can I calculate them?

Azimuth refers to the rotation of the whole antenna around a vertical axis. It is the side to side angle. Typically you loosen the main mount bracket and swing the whole dish around on this vertical axis to achieve a particular azimuth.

Elevation refers to the angle between the beam pointing direction, directly towards the satellite, and the local horizontal plane. It is the up-down angle.
