The METEOSAT 7 satellite is old and does not have enough fuel to keep it in a perfect geostationary orbit.  It has an “inclined orbit” which makes it appear to drift north-south during the course of a day.  (now over 7 degrees each way).  This requires a reception antenna to be re-pointed often to compensate for this drifting.  Below is a guide to make  that process easier.
