Re: KE4ARM satellite tracking website



I would like to take it over, if I can get all of the code.  It should
require little maintenance....just refreshing the element sets at least once
a week.  I am conversant in Perl, which appears to be what it is written in.
I'm not sure if the main code is public, though.  A quick look only came up
with the calling code and output form.  I'll look some more and let you know
if it's doable.
