Hey Dave,

If I understand your question correctly, it looks to me as though Orbitron will do what you want. Check it out at www.stoff.pl. It has a "simulation mode," which I use often to confirm elevations and ranges after passes because my station for the FM satellites is totally handheld. I just put it in simulation mode and changed the date from today to a week from today, and it showed me where the satellites I track with it would be one week from today at the same time UTC.

73 to all,
