Thanks to all who responded regarding their suggestions for an IPhone
satellite tracking app.
First off, my problem with Satellite Tracker was my entry of longitude.
I failed to enter a "-" for west. With that done it's looking good. Very
simple to use without all the frills.
I also down downloaded pxSat and decided to pay the $29+ for PocketSat3
since it was highly recommended by Drew and others. pxSat took a little
to figure out and offers a few nice features over Satellite Tracker.
But, in the short time using it, I really like PocketSat3 since it is
feature rich. So again you get what you pay for. Thanks to all who
pointed out my options.
