Default Where is the Sirius antenna aiming software?

I recall that I once found a piece of software that assisted in aiming antennas. The user entered their lattitude and longitude. The software displayed the optimal compass orientation for a Sirius antenna.

I want to remember that it also displayed optimal azimuth, but I think I am making that up.

I can't locate it now, despite doing Backstage and Google searches.
When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be somebody.
Now, I realize I should have been more specific.

As long as your antenna is out in the open and facing straight up you shouldn't have any problems. The map that DarkSpoon posted is a rough idea but that's really all you need.
