[amsat-bb] Gating Satellite Passes to local APRS RF

Dear All,

I am running an APRS iGate on 2M locally using UI-View32, AGWPE and a KPC-9612+ TNC (callsign 9M4GQC).

I wonder if it would be possible to add the capability of sending live satellite passes as objects to the local APRS RF (not the Internet) network so as to alert local users when a satellite passes over our area.

Would be also great if we could add the frequency information so that Kenwood and Yaesu APRS users can directly QSY to the satellite's frequency.

Tried to look up the net but could not find any articles or software to do do. Any pointers are much welcome and appreciated.

Thank you.
