I too found the pass prediction page was missing from the amsat web site. I did find
www.heavens-above.com provides the ability to predict passes, although it is a little complicated.
I registered with a userid and password so the site would remember the location info and
time zone when I returned to heavens-above.
I found that the predictions generated by satscape (the predictor program on my macbook)
matched heavens-above. Then I found out why I wasn't hearing satellites at the appropriate
time on 70cm was because something is wrong with my 70cm antenna. Due to health
issues, I can no longer go up on the roof to do antenna work so I will have to find
someone to help me fix it.
