In this paper, the authors deal with designing a satellite dish antenna positioning system using stepper motors. The system's software use longitude, latitude of the dish position (antenna site) and the satellite longitude as an input data. The software makes different calculations to transform this data to digits. The digits are then transformed to signals and fed to the stepper motors drivers to move the antenna adjusting azimuth, elevation and polarization angles to the intended satellite.
