Question HELP with Dish Network Satellite Location

Does anyone know the location of their satellite. I am going to the race this week, and am taking my Satellite with me. I have Dish Network, but am in an apartment so I don't use my own dish. I have a spare dish from when I had a house, and need to know the location of their Satellite. Does anyone know that information?

Thanks MUCH!

do you know the Azimuth and Elevation?

I think it is
Azimuth = 202 degrees
Elevation = 47 Degrees

Can anyone verify this?

I've never put any in.

Here is the "Point Dish/Signal" for mine:

Satellite: 119 West
Transponder: 08
Zip Code: 00000
Azimuth Angle: [blank]
Elevation Angle: [blank]

129 West Install

Signal Strength: 122

Will a strong magnet wipe out the data on the smart card?
