Is there a way in SatPC32 to get the program to draw the orbital track line of the satellites, so that we can see where the satellite will be ahead of it's current position?  I can't find a setting that enables that line drawing, and it sure seems like a gross shortcoming... considering the price I paid for it.   Thanks.

Right out of the manual:

During real time operation, the following sub-functions can be enabled/disabled or controlled by clicking the "letter" buttons:

<snip>

G    Ground Track for the next orbit.

       Clicking once (Gt) displays the ground track for a few seconds.

       Clicking twice (G+) displays the ground track continuously.

       The distance between 2 points corresponds to a 2-minute time interval.

My goodness, what did you pay for it?  I think the going price is $55.  That is a pretty good price for what it does.  Or you could write your own program and sell it for say $10 a copy and get rich?   By the way, you probably spend $55 for a night at the movies with the wife and/or family.

Oh yeah, as has already been said, double click on the G- in the upper lefthand corner of your screen.

Thanks, Drew.  And the other fellow.... well, I suppose I deserved that kind of admonishment.  Still, a little impolite. But you have a good day too.

I think after you use the program for awhile, you will see what a great value it is. Erich is always only an E-mail away if you need help.
73 and good luck,
