Re: RE: Linux tracking software for Linux



Hmmmm...I downloaded and installed Predict, Mtrack and ordered the SatTrak
commercial (but free) CD. The only one I kept using was Mtrack. It is small,
fast and easy to use. It updates its satellite elements by importing TLE's,
which makes perfectly good sense to me. It doesn't show doppler (it should),
but it does show SQUINT. For a very basic tracking program it's quite
functional.

It isn't the equal of IT for dos, or LogSat Pro for Win, by any means, but
it is quite usable. I found predict to be a nightmare to try to configure
with mapping. SatTrak, I will probably try again later, when I feel like
digging through a ton of menus.

73,

hasan
