Not familiar with your particular equipment, but as Ed says, generally you'll be pointed in a southerly direction. From Fla we point SW, but from where you are I'm guessing more due south. Depends. of course, on what satellite you'll be aiming at. My DirecTV points roughly southwest, but my recently installed Direcway dish for sat internet points about 15 degrees more to the south due to a different (new) satellite in orbit.

Bottom line: In most cases, where you'll be aiming the dish will limit your mounting location options as you'll need a clear line of sight at the proper azimuth and elevation.

Thanks, Guys.
I see lot of people in my neighbor and surrounding mounting their dishes facing South, so I guess I'll do that.
