AO-40 MA, ALON/ALAT and squint angle ??

I am in process of setting up my S-Band receiver and I assume that
AO-40 is using a high gain antenna for the S Beacon.

Can someone explain in simple terms the relationship of these terms? I
am using LOGSAT and can input an "attitude" LON and LAT, (I assume this
to be same as  ALON/ALAT?) and the program will display a Squint Angle,
but that is about all the program tells about the S/C attitude. How do I
interpret the squint angle to be useable, and where do I find the MA for
the pass?

Also what are the most current  values to input.
