[amsat-bb] Re: Satellite tracking on Handheld PC

I use SatTrack+ with my old iPaq Pocket PC. I don't know if the program
will work on yours but there is also a version for Palm... Since it is
trial-ware, I'd say try it.
I'm very satisfied with the way it works. I usually check the pass
trajectory before I go out (I'm working portable) as I don't want to
have to carry more stuff than really needed.
It would be nice if the program alerted you to the time of the pass, but
unfortunately, it does not do that. I program my cell phone's scheduler
for that and that works best as the cell phone is with me all the time.
