With Predict running as a server application, you are NOT restricted to 
running just the one client application, you can run several so if gsat 
doesn't do what you want and the idea of modifying something like that 
seems a bit daunting, then write your own Predict client.

Several clients are supplied with Predict, some very sophisticated and 
some very simple - there is a skeleton client in perl, and even one in 
VB for a Windoze system.
