Re: Nova Squint Readings?

Hi Richard.  I am not sure I have my Nova setup right either for the 
squint reading on AO-40.  I entered the same ALAT and ALON  you did. 
 What squint type did you use in satellite mode schedule.  I clicked on 
the AO13/P3D type.  I assumed this is correct.  I have a squint now at 
22:39 UTC of 160.5 at MA 47.1.  It just seems this a big squint.  I am 
new at using Nova.
