Re: Orbit Numbers



SatPC32 increases the orbit number when the satellite passes  perigee (the
program was originally developed for Phase-III satellites, where this is the
usual method, see AO-40). I didn't change that for the LEOS, since the orbit
number is rather meanigless with these satellites.
