One thing to try is to have a page with a template of the files you'd need to update in SatPC32. At least you'll have an idea of which files you need? 

Populating the data content depends on the satellite so once that data is known it can be edited into your local copy of the template ... or the missing information could be the basis of specific queries.

The AMSAT News Service, the AMSAT web, and AMSAT Journal use templates to keep track of the things to do ... but, of course, all of the work comes from making the content to fill out the template. Keep those cards and letters to the editors coming folks!

But, I digress, if we'd like to try a SatPC32 template could an experienced user send a trial copy to me at the e-mail at the signature line. Also try to add a bit of descriptive text to the data elements that are needed to complete the template. (BTW, I'm not a SatPC32 user.)

I'll post a PDF to our 'Station and Operating Hints' page:
