James Would your neighbour complain of signal loss if untrue? Have a look at the dishes and remember that they are offset. The true elevation of the satellites is probably 25°-30°. If your dish or part of it is in line with your neighbours LNB arm and near to 25°-30° above their dish then it could be true.
