I guess that you have the rotor on a moveable platform such as a truck, 
spacecraft. watercraft, etc.

The look angle to the fixed object is the reciprocal of the angle generated 
by the tracking program.

It should work if the antennas are mounted 180 degrees from where they 
would normally be mounted.
