*** Greg Swift's STSUPDAT Software ***

STSUPDAT v2.30 - by Greg Swift
STSPLUS requires current orbital data ("TLEs"
or "2-Line Elements") for accurate satellite
tracking.  For satellites in low Earth orbit,
such as the Space Shuttle or International
Space Station, these TLEs should be updated no
less frequently than weekly, more often if the
satellite may be maneuvering or adjusting its
orbit; for satellites in higher orbits, these
TLEs should be updated no less frequently than
monthly. Greg Swift has written an add-on
program for STSPLUS called STSUPDAT to
automate the TLE update process for STSPLUS
via the Internet. Users not familiar with file
downloads and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) via
the Internet will find STSUPDAT helpful since
it makes that process completely transparent
to the user.  Experienced users will
appreciate the convenience of STSUPDAT.

Orbitron v3.10 [Orbitron_3.10.EXE] - Sebastian
Stoff - April 19, 2004 - Orbitron is a
Win9x/2k/Me/XP/2003 satellite tracking system
for radio amateur and observing purposes. It's
also used by weather professionals, satellite
communication users, UFO hobbyist and
astrologers. Application shows the positions
of satellites at any given moment (realtime or
simulated). It's FREE (Cardware) and probably
one of the easiest and most powerful satellite
trackers available. This file renamed due to
