Adding AO-73 in SatPC32 is very simple if you use AMSAT's keps file
called nasa.all. This file contains the AO-73 Keps together with the
Keps for all the other active ham satellites. The satellite names are
already in the familiar format.
You can assign AO-73 to one of the 12 quick-access "letters" on the
lower right corner of the main SatPC32 screen. If you have an
unassigned letter, open the "Satellites" menu and simply double-click
AO-73 in the "Available" list, and AO-73 will be assigned to the next
unused letter in the "Selected" list.
Paste the following text into the Doppler.SQF text file. Open the file
directly from the SatPC32 program using the menu "?" -> Auxiliary Files
Then you're all set to go. With Doppler.SQF text as specified above,
the program will default to the beacon. To switch to the transponder
you need to click the CAT menu and select the transponder data line. If
you reverse the two AO-73 lines in Doppler.SQF the program will default
to the transponder instead of the beacon.
