Re: Help with rotor control and GS-232B



You can download the entire program and run it in demo mode, which is 
completely functional, and purchase the registration code when Martha 
returns. Here is the link: http://www.dk1tb.de/downloadeng.htm .

SatPC32 is by far the most reliable and has the best features of any of the 
programs I've used, which is a fair amount. Plus, 100% of the registration 
goes to AMSAT. Erich has really done a most incredible and generous thing 
with the program.
