Re: HT Satellite Tracking



Satellite mode?

On a D700a, which is what I'm most familiar with, the data goes into the DX
Cluster section, and can be accessed independently of what frequency one is
on....  And the info that is usually transmitted goes well over an hour into
the future.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big believer in being able to do your own
tracking, and I'm trying to determine how to do it on my Pocket PC. But it's
also useful to have this info when I'm not actively trying to work
satellites, as an opportunistic way to find out about passes.
