Geostationary Satellite Azimuth And Elevation Calculator

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to give the approximate satellite communications angle for your ground antenna. If you wish to establish communications with a given satellite, then you can obtain the azimuth and elevation for that satellite, based on your Earth location. Enter the geosat orbit location in degrees in the Satellite Longitude field. For example, enter 74.05 for the SBS-6 satellite. Manually enter your approximate Earth location in the longitude and latitude fields. For instance if you were around Los Angeles, CA, USA, those figures would be about 34° (degrees) North Latitude and 118.25° West Longitude. Click on Calculate to see the azimuth, elevation and tilt calculations.
