Good Richard, this nostalgia keeps coming out of the woodwork!!

You've probably done this, Richard, but I'll put it on amsat.org in 
case others are interested:

Determine your own EQX's by running the IT tracking program, and I'm 
sure other trackers will do the same thing...

Simply note the satellites passage when it crosses the equator, and 
of course when visible to you at some future time...get a map of the 
world centered at your pole, create your own compass rose of 
visibility, your own overlay, and you have your Oscarlocator....

I'm sending Emily a copy of my colored Oscarlocator, if she wishes to 
put it on our website, and it will help explain...I had that one set 
to show a sample pass of Oscar 7 for San Diego

               Pulling for P3E...
