Re: Re: Sat Tracking/Best



IT doesn't do the map screen on an HP200.  And it won't do anything
like give visibilty info.  If you could put the sun in a group with
the satellite of interest, it'd come pretty close to the latter,
but...

I don't think it'll output an ephemeris to a file, either.
IT is nice but for many things it's just a bit short of features.

   Well what about using Instant track????   It is a DOS based program that has
   been used for YEARS and still is worth using. It works well in a windoze setup
   also!!!
