Hi David,
WinAOS shows the AOS and LOS times of multiple satellites in chronological
order for the selected period (by default 1 day). When you click on a line
all passes of THAT satellite will be highlighted. So you have  better 
overview for a particular satellite.

The program checks the passes in steps of 1 minute and displays the times in 
full minutes. So, the maximum inaccuracy is within 1 minute (see the WinAOS 
"Help" text). That is sufficient for an overview, I think.

You should use the same Keps file with WinAOS that you use with SatPC32, 
i.e. nasa.all.

 73s, Erich, DK1TB

Many thanks Alan and Pete, sorry for the late reply but SW Florida just
had an electrical and rain storm that was way worse than anything Fay
threw at us Tuesday and knocked the internet out!

I am looking at WinAOS, that is what I was looking for so thanks for that!

I am just comparing the listing given to the Countdown list on the main
screen and there are some differences and can you also tell me what the
significance is of the blue blocked entries on the list?
