It seems to me that some smartphones have sensors for elevation and 
azimuth, and the capacity to calculate those for satellite passes.
Has anyone combined all that so that one could just attach the 'phone to 
the antenna boom and have it indicate where to point it?

This would be particularly useful for the analog sats, since very little 
attention would need to be paid to antenna pointing.
