Thanks to the thoughtful feedback from Codrut, YO3DMU, I have learned that the 
GJAZEL.dat file generated by previous versions of GJTRACKER have shown the azimuth 
for the DX station instead of the HOME station.  This of course is only noticed by 
somebody who is using an automatic tracking program to obtain aiming data from this 
file, which is updated every minute when GJTRACKER is run in REAL TIME mode.

Codrut wrote such an automatic antenna tracking program, and I am grateful to him for 
bringing this error to my attention. The corrected version 1.06 of GJTRACKER does now 
correctly transfer the HOME STATION azimuth and elevation to the GJAZEL.dat file:


GL and DX to all!  VY 73, Lance
