Did anyone read about the Chinese satellite that was shot down last year? It stirred up some commotion I reckon... it was just the 4th time ever that such a thing happened... launched a bit of fright for a spacial armaments race. So indeed, the Fengyun 1-C weather satellite no longer appears in the Orbitron weather TLE file... I immediately wrote the incident down in the Info box.

I wonder who is smart enough to actually tap into some basic data streams of those shiny structures up in space...

Ever since I downloaded Orbitron two weeks ago, I've been scurrying around the web looking up names and functions of the satellite code names (some acronyms) and their purpose of orbit ever since... I think my interest in satellites came with watchin the movie Armageddon where TDRSS was mentioned. Since I'm a sucker for acronyms I wanted to know of...
So now I know a bit on Iridium, the Cosmos and Ikonos sats and soforth. How about the 'Unknowns' that are charted?
Any theories of that? I think NAVCOMSAT must be one of them, who else thinks this?

I also came to find the GeoEye.com website , where you can register and look for high-res satellite photos. I think this is way more authentic than Google Earth.

So about the Chinese sat that was taken down by a Chinese missile.

Tanks for the great programm. Would it be possble to add the function that allow to estimate time of transit of the ISS
over the Moon?

Really cool s/w...but, I am tracking orbcomm fm 34 using this s/w and nasa Jtrack 3d. While orbcomm fm34 is over africa on nasa s/w, it it showing up over eastern USA in Orbitron...any thoughts? What do the different colors of the ground track indicate?

Thanks

Objects with lower magnitudes are brighter than objects with higher magnitudes. Sun has -26 magnitude and faintest star visible by naked eye has 6 magnidue.

I'm confused with the magnitude field in the predictions window...first, I thought higher magnitude means brighter, than I thought lower magnitude was brighter, now I'm just confused, because I read something about ISS saying that it's easy to see from the earth, even at -1.5 magnitude, and I thought -1.5 would be bright...I'm confused...please answer!

Hi
New to Orbitron,i find this sort of thing fasinating.i do`nt understand yet but i`m gonna play with it !!!
Well done it`s a great piece of software

Does anyone have Orbitron working with the SAT688 or LVB interfaces via USB??

Will Orbitron interface with the Labjack U12 and piggyback hardware for controlling a Yaesu G5500 rotor?
Or, asked another way....
What USB based, rotor controller hardware will work with Orbitron?

Thanks,

Retract the last Post... I just figured out how to do exactally what I wanted to do! Now that I can do that.. This probabally will become my favorite Tracking Prog!

I am a new user to Orbitron, and am Really Liking it. I wonder is there is an ability or possible upgrade in progress to fast forward the sat's path? I find it usefull to fast forward with ( other progs ) so I can see if I have an upcomming pass. I know you can predict it.. but its a visual thing for me.. just pressing the Fast forward button.. and seeing whats is comming next.

is it only possible to calculate predictions about Irdium satellites for a specific time and location? I'd like to see predictions for the much bigger Visual TLE.

I love using orbitron on my XP computer.

Will there ever be an OS X (PPC or Intel or both) version of Orbitron at any point?

Great program... i'm using it for many times... Is there any chance to add GPS define of observer location (NMEA)or synch clock?

Thanks for your effort

Hi
Any chance we could have an audio alarm when a chosen sat comes within range? i.e. when it comes in range of the radar screen.

Thanks

How can we put new Molczan file in order to update the previous one and have new rcs values and magnitudes about the satellites?
Ted Molczan said that he takes the values from Mike McCants's website (www.io.com/~mmccants/tles/index.html.it is mcnames.zip)
can you update the program in order to rewrite the values from this site?
PLEASE ANSWER

I am still thaving problem with the WispeDDE link to control my FT817 everything is OK but after a minute or so the radio is a little off ther freq. given by Orbitron and the longer I stayed attached to the DDE link the worse it gets. Orbitron is great works very, very well but the link seems to be giving the incorrect data to the radio?
Any idea's, oh by the way just building a simple interface to let the PC control that as well (sheer lazyness) but the DDE link seems to keep that very accurate?
many thanks
Gus

Is there a TLE that covers WAAS satellites?
Looking for Inmarsat III POR (Pacific Ocean Region) and AOR-W (Atlantic Ocean Region-West) and new Anik and PanAm with NMEA satellite IDs 32 to 51.
Reference http://gpsinformation.net/exe/waas.html

The following PRNs have been allocated to the WAAS system:
Geostationary PRN NMEA Satellite ID

AOR-W (moving) 122 35@
Anik 138 51*
POR 134 47@
PanAm 135 48*

*=new, @=existing
Anik F1R was launched with Proton 2005-09-08
PanAm (Galaxy 15) was launched with Ariane 5 2005-10-13.

Is there a version of Orbitron for Pocket PC? Are you thinking of one? I'm not always in front of my laptop but I'm always interested in what's where in the heavens.
