Hi All,

Thanks to Mark Hammond for letting me know about Predict and the ability of
showing eclipse periods for months in advance! I can now build a chart to
show full sunlight periods for PCSAT and UO-11 for which doesn’t look good
as Clive has said in his report!.

With all the talk of Emcomm, it would be nice to know when PCSAT is
available and like to be full operation by looking at a line graph etc..

Just a though.. Also, may be worth doing one for AO-6 & 8 to see when they
get full sunlight in case they decide to return??

All the best and thanks for your help!


P.S. Maybe one day I can assist in answering questions instead of bombarding

InstantTrack does not have a feature for this purpose.
