Re: Graphical Satellite Pass Schedule Graphics?



I like the tabular output from the WinAOS module of SatPC32 (example 
below)...  I find it much more useful than a graphical pass schedule:  it 
not only tells me which bird will rise & set when, but how high it will get 
and the azimuth at AOS and LOS
