Dave might not have made it clear what to do when you know the
sub-satellite point which in this case is 89 degrees.  Once you know that,
then simply use the graphs in the Radio Amateur Satellite Handbook, or
many other sources for those graphs and determine the elevation and
azimuth of the antenna.  There formulas available as well in which only a
handheld calulator is required.   Cliff K7RR
