DSS dish alignment/s...

A year ago, i installed a few DSS dishes on homes in Northern Wisconsin;
i followed the included manual's directions for aiming the dish/es, but
the elevation was high by 2 degrees....get a sat signal "chirper" and
locate the strongest signal at the dish...NOT using the menu's RSS on
the screen. 
Use that only after you get a strong downlink from the "chirper" or
beeper, or whatever it is called regionally....my paperwork stated 190
degrees lat. 37 degrees long.
Reality was: 185 degrees lat., by 35 degrees long.
RSS was a strong 94.
Thanks, my .0002 penny's worth.
