Anyone know what the look angle is for voom? Or more precisely I guess, what satellite, etc? Going to have one installed, and I need to see if it will fit in my dish farm.

Their satellite is at 61.5 degrees west longitude.

Same location as Echostar's satellite, eg: SkyAngel, International channels, some local channels.

For me.... that means an elevation of 14 degrees. Yuck.

Yea, you can do it as long as you don't have a Dishpro Setup.

Nope, legacy twin/dish 500 with dish 300/SW-21 feeding my 811.

Use the second side of the dual on your dish 300 for Voom. Or if you are using 61.5° for both your Dish Receivers, Use a 3x4 multiswitch on the 61.5° LNB for 2 more outlets.

Does Voom use a small dish? It thought it was a big one about the size of the super dish.
