Umm, that's ftp://ftp.amsat.org/amsat/satinfo/ao13

I would very much like to have a more "active" archive for P3D, and for that matter for any other satellite that transmits telemetry. I've been meaning to set up a system where any groundstation could submit telemetry copy via a web page or FTP location, and the submitted telemetry would automatically be integrated into a database online (with duplicates removed, and maybe some "scoring" for an incentive). Then there'd be a query interface on the web where anybody could pull reports based on certain criteria, maybe even online graphs and other whiz-bang features.

Doing all that stuff takes a minute to describe, but many many hours to implement. If anybody out there with the appropriate programming skills (Unix, database, CGI, whatnot) wants to take this on, let's talk.
