It does. While I have not tried Nova, however, there are plenty of GUI
front-ends available for Predict. Personally, I use predict 2.2.1 which,
downloaded from the author's web site, includes gsat 1.0.0 (among others). I
have patched that one to add a little functionality I was missing and clean
up a few printing oddities (newlines not being stripped in the output), and
that works great.

I'm still trying to figure out how to calculate satellite contact windows
using predict, but I might be overlooking something simple. If you know how
to do that, please do let me know. (Given the two station coordinates and a
satellite preference, I'd like to know if/when it is possible to have a
contact.)
