Satellite Dish Navigation

A lot of people are aware that TV satellite dishes can be used to find direction. There is a popular belief that in the UK that the dishes point south, which fairly accurate, it is actually normally south-southeast. The areas of Libya that I have just returned from are a few degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer and so some south in the dishes made sense, although I did note that there they tended towards south-southwest.
