Re: identify dish

I think you are correct, Dish looks to be 1000.2 but LNB looks like it is for eastern arc satellites. Western arc LNB is a straight, horizontal row of three eyes. WA is for 110, 119, and 129. That is for the eastern arc satellites. Someone with more knowledge can clue you to your location and if EA will work for you. Otherwise you may need to obtain WA LNB if you need 110, 119, and 129.

You'll want to point towards 1000.4EA for satellites 61.5, 72, and possibly 77(not used)

As Chad said, use the 1000.4 settings at dishpointer.com. You'll only be looking at the 61.5 and 72.7 sats. Those two have everything you need on them. There is nothing on the 77 sat needed for your market area.
