Please note the following for the current Pointing Data:
Elevation Alignments - “Long Polar Bolt”
Must be done at either the SOUTH or NORTH PEAK. This alignment should be done weekly to ensure a good signal for Analog and Digital connections.
Azimuth Alignments - “East\West”
Must be done at either the NORTH-SOUTH CROSSING or SOUTH-NORTH CROSSING. This alignment should only be done if repeated attempts to do an Elevation Alignment still leaves your Earth Station with a low receive signal. Please contact PEACESAT Honolulu prior to performing this alignment.
The pointing data is saved as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. If you do not have a PDF Reader, it can be downloaded for free on the Adobe website:
