Hi Greg,

Yes that is on the wish list for HamSatDroid already. Unfortunately, there
is no centralised repository for this information that is available as a
web service which could be polled to get updates..

Mike Rupprecht DK3WN and a number of AMSAT sites have a rich set of info as
web pages but it is not in a suitable form for off-line use.

I was approached last year at the AMSAT-UK Colloquium to see if I would be
interested in extending the IARU satellite co-ordinantion database to
support such a function. Unfortunately FUNcube work has precluded this.

If there is a general interest in this I should be happy to implement it,
but it would need management by a team.
