Note:  Times are LOCAL SUN TIME for MID Northern Latitudes.  Use this to
       plan your mobile operations during commuting and distant travels.

The "****"'s above just mean that during those hours you will get several
passes.  Here are some simple rules for PCsat's orbit:

1) You will get about 3 passes during two separate periods per day
2) If you hear PCsat, then you will probably hear it 100 minutes later
3) For high passes, a similar pass will occur 30 minutes earlier each day.
4) Once a week, add 100 minutes to this routine to stay on the high pass.

Nightime operations of PCsat (greater than 1.5 hrs after sunset) are
discouraged due to the current high eclipse period.

de WB4APR, Bob
