Satellite Antenna Bearing Calculator
Use this simple online geophysics calculator to calculate the Antenna Azimuth and Antenna Elevation for a satellite antenna for the given values of receiver longtitude, receiver lattitude and the satellite longitude. Azimuth is simply the angle of an object in the sky along the horizon. In this online Satellite Antenna Bearing Calculator enter the lattitude and longtitude values of receiver and satellite and submit to konw the antenna azimuth and antenna elevation.
Antenna Azimuth is the degree at which the target object (usually the Sun) is located starting from true North, which is considered as 0 degree. (East is 90 degrees, South is 180 degrees and West is 270 degrees). Antenna Elevation or the azimuth angle is the degree of angle, where the target object is located. That is at how much height the target object is located above the horizon. Azimuth angle is the angle between the object, the satellite and the horizon.
