Is azimuth base on true or magnetic north
When lining up the antenna system for satellites?
When I looked it up, says true north.
Is that true for ALL satrellite tracking software?

One website says 12 degrees 58 seconds West is the magnetic declination.
So does that mean turn my antenna west by that amount from
Magnetic north?
