Good day

We are trying to locate the nearest MTN Tower in our area. We currently have an Huawei B612-233 Router.

1) Can someone advise how to find the location of the Nearest MTN Tower so I can point my aerials toward it ?(Currently using 2x LPDA Antennae's)
2) Is there an APP for the PC or where should I look on the Router to ensure its aligned?
3) If using 2x Antennae's (LPDA), should they be level or pointed slightly downwards?
From my Random Speed Tests performed the MTN tower is off the Right of house in the front where as the Vodacom tower is definitely behind my house.

See links below

The Vodacom Tower is here: (need to find the MTN one)
-29.411941768926287, 30.4501332624939

OpenSignal on Android, for locating the nearest tower, if you will.
