[amsat-bb] Setting memory frequencies for FM satellite operation

Is there a computer program that will compute a table of time, azimuth, elevation for a given satellite and station location for a set of Doppler corrected frequencies (both uplink and downlink) in user-specified frequency intervals.

For example, SO-50

TIME       AZ    EL    UP            DOWN
0959:00    10    34    145982.17     435165.53
1000:00    44    46    145980.66     435170.05

but where the frequencies are in user-defined increments of 2.5 or 5.0 kHz.

This would simplify choosing frequency memories for handhelds and when to switch memories when operating FM satellites.
