Need AO-40 Squint Angle Calculator / Program

I am using Satscape to track all satellites. I noticed that this program
appears not to have the data for the current squint angle but has a very
accurate phase MA display to at least tell if the satellite is turned
on. Where can I find a simple application to determine what the current
squint angle on AO-40.

BTW: The K5OE dish mod to add a screen reflector and make the dish round
made a huge improvement to the 2 ft X 3 Ft BBQ Dish. It was increased to
about 3.8 feet in diameter which is the same size as the primestar dish
with 50% less weight and wind load . Next improvement is to replace the
cal amp downconverter with a AIDC 3733 for better signal to noise and
