You can select Brief or 3 lines (AOS, MET, LOS) but what I would like
is a line for every minute or two during the pass, maybe selectable.
Also, can I get directions instead of AZM? I haven't gotten used to
that yet. All this would be very helpful to me instead of having to
bring my laptop, which will be hard to see outside anyway. Something I
can just print out, and look at my watch to know where it is, and
where to point, would be more convenient, I think.

PS, I got into SO-50 this morning and this evening, meaning I could
hear myself clearly on the downlink. someone in a Delta grid square
came back to me this morning, but I didn't have the bird well enough
to receive very well and had to apologize for that. This evening I
heard myself multiple times but everyone was trying to work W4T. I got
a good audio recording of the evening pass too. If someone wants it,
let me know. My next attempt at SO-50 will be the Thursday morning
pass and the evening pass too perhaps if I don't get anything in the
morning. I must say, working this bird is very hard with such a low
power signal. It is still very fun, but I am definitely thinking about
a preamp! Hah!
