Post SATELLITE TRACKING SOFTWARE...
Wondering what software you guys use for tracking the satellite's routes....

Can anyone recommend a "clean" website to download from as I have just spent 3 hrs getting rid of virus's that came with one load of software recommended by Randy k7AGE...

All ideas appreciated..

Don't use satellites myself but how about Amsat?
http://amsat-uk.org/
Seems the obvious place to me.

Cheers

Orbitron is what I used to use. Not that I was active by any means and just used it for AO51, VO52 and ISS.
Make sure the KEPS (prediction algorithms) are updated regularly and its a great little program once its configured.

Best of luck :)

Thanks for the info guys...funnily enough it was Orbitron that gave me the issues with the virus's ...I see someone said to load direct form the authors own site...

Tony, I did have a look at AMSAT and it listed Orbitron and because I had just spent a few hrs doing a clean up I was looking for something else....still I may try the link provided and see what happens ...at least this time I am aware of what to look for virus wise..

Cheers all

Glad you got it sorted Lyndon,

It is a minefield with older/esoteric software some of these software repository sites end up with modified malwared/virused versions and they end up at the top of a google search.. :banghead:
