Hi Jack,
please read the WinAOS help file that can opened with the WinAOS "Help"

In the SatPC32 environment WinAOS uses (by default) the same Keps file as
SatPC32. So, when you update that Keps file for SatPC32 WinAOS will
automatcally use the updated Keps.

When you run WinAOS "stand allone" you can download Keps files, for example
nasa.all, with your browser. You will see some download addresses in the
SatPC32  "Download Keps" window. In menu "Satellites" click on "Update Keps"
to open that window. In your browser open the file as (ascii) text  file
with,  e.g., Wordpad and save it in that format.

To choose a Keps file for WinAOS open menu "File" and navigate to the folder
that contains the file. The path and filename will then be saved for later
program starts.

With WinAOS you can not specify the altitude of your location. The program
gives a quick overview over the rising and setting times.  For that purpose
the accuracy is fully sufficient.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
