As an alternative, try http://amsat.org.ar/pass.exe .

This app uses driver at http://amsat.org.ar/wispdde.exe

Which allow setup and control GS-232 rotor as well as Dopplers on or

Just click on the Satellite to be tracked, rotor and rigs are settled.

Wishing good luck with your University Cubesat.
