TECHNICAL NOTES:
Consult technical information to confirm actual reception requirements.
EL  = Elevation in degrees above the horizon
AZ  = True directional heading (azimuth) in degrees

****  indicates satellite is below the local horizon (unavailable)
       DBS  indicates DBS Satellite orbital position
       Due South Satellite angles in BLUE
       148.0 DBS satellite is closest to due South, but many not have
          a usable signal in the State Of Hawaii.
