I'm not using WISP with Rascal however in a quick test I could get WiSP to
launch RASCAL

In the program line use:

	java -jar c:\rascal\rascal.jar

However, you may get additional error messages.  After about a 30 seconds I
got a message saying GSC may not be able to close the program at the end of
the pass and therefore is stopping the rotator and that you should use the
Enable Rotator menu to restart it.

So more work is required to get this working automatically.

Hope this helps you move forward a little to a more complete solution.

Subject: [amsat-bb] DO-64 and Wisp

Hi to the list,
I am using wisp and would like to add the DO-64.
I have added it as keplerians but I cannot get it work with the Rascal
program when the bird comes in AOS.
I have substitute in the scheduling Tab, the line:

With the line:


But when the DO-64 comes in AOS the program do not run and I get the
following GSC error:

Error running program.GSC was unable to find the program associated with
this Satellite, or there was an error while running it.

I've tried also with this line in the command above:


But get the same results.
Any suggestion how to solve it'
Thanks in advanced.
