Hi John,

I'm sort of reviving my interest in old tyme Oscar functions....

I used to get the EQX tables from QST (Glad they had an interest in 
Amateur satellites then!!), and seem to  remember there were other sources..

However, if there is a program that produces them I would sure be 
interested....So would my grandson...he is in computer sciences in 
college, and we have fun playing with basic and basica on an OLD  DOS

               Pulling for P3E...
