[amsat-bb] SatPC32 parking frequency?

You could fake up a geostationary satellite. Theoretically the Doppler shift would be zero.
Practically, very close to zero, depending on how good your tweaking is.

If you placed it below your horizon, say on the other side of the earth, the antennas would point at
the desired parking position between passes. The rig would remain in satellite mode however, but maybe
that is enough?

<Anyone done this?
