Re: re:squint and winorbit



Put this is a file called AO-40.att.  The AO-40 assumes that is what you
call your satellite in the database.  If it is something different, use that
name before the .att.  The help file in WinOrbit explains this.

[Transponder]
UplinkFreq= 435.800
DownlinkFreq= 2401.225
TransponderInverting=True

[Beacon]
BeaconFreq= 2401.335

[Attitude]
Alat=6.2
Alon=145.5
Expiration=01225.0
