Hi to the group... Check that when you extracted the ZIP that you retained
the path structure and that the file you appear to be missing is located in
the ...\Rascal\lib\ folder along with 2 others and the RASCAL.jar is the
only one in the \Rascal folder.

Here is what I added to the SATPC32 Doppler.SQF file:


And the KEPS file used by SATPC32 taken from the Delfi web site:

1 40001U 06001A   08118.16180560  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0  0011
2 40001  97.9389 172.1611 0000003 306.1031 257.7697 14.79801651 00003

The problem I am having is that I'm locally testing using the 5mb WAV file
from the Delfi site to see if Rascal synchs and decodes.  No joy yet!  I'm
running a microphone on the Rascal computer and the MP3 on another computer.
Only intermittent synchs.  Perhaps my microphone input and speaker output
are not optimal in the frequency ranges needed.  Direct connection is next
testing step.

Don't forget to register with Delfi as the uploading of captured telemetry
to them will be automagically done by the internet.

When I attempt to run RASCAL, I get an error box:

Failed to load:lib/jcommon-1.0.12jar,lib/frechart-1.0.9.jar

The chart library is not found on your computer

Please check:lib/jcommon-1.0.12jar,lib/frechart-1.0.9.jar or reinstall
Rascal ===

I am using WINXP Pro, and the current JAVA package.  I am using the command
line to invoke RASCAL.
