General info about RQHA, but now  also Technical Notes of theRQHA's pdf download.(dutch workgroup KUNSTMANEN)

Orbitron Satellite tracking system for radio amteur and observing puposes It's also used by weather professionals, satellite communication users, astronomers, UFO hobbyist and even astrologers. Application shows the  positions of satellites at any given moment (in real or simulated time). It's FREE (Cardware) and it's probably one of the easiest and most powerful satellite trackers, according to opinions of thousands of users from all over the world.

J-Track from NASA.
  The tracking system calculates an approximate location for a list of satellites.

A new free Windows satellite tracker programm called SatScape is now available. Satscape a specialised program that predicts where satellites are at the moment. You have also a World view, Horizon views, tabular list and a keppler update via your Internet connection.

Les Hamilton, UK has launched a new Satellite tracking program called Footprint.
Footprint is program which displays the positions of an orbiting satellite and its footprint on a map of the Earth, updating its position and footprint every minute.
The program  can also provide reference tables of relevant ephemeris, A.O.S. and keplerian element data.
The program reads satellites' orbital elements from keplerian element files in standard NASA 2-line format, specifically  filtering out only those satellites belonging to the following classes :
NOAA, USA; Meteor Okean and Resurs, Russia; Sich,  Ukraine.
Download your copy of Footprint from
Les  HamiltonWeather Satellite Image Pages, free  software and using WXSat.

On May 05 1998 I have received the first APT Image from Meteosat 7, it was disseminated via Meteosat 6 channel 1 at 0823 UTC.
I have decoded this Image with
JVComm32 and EasyDSP. For download go to Weekly Picture.
