Hi Chris,

This is really great!  It looks like it provides 95% of all the information
I would need when out roving.  What I can't find is info about a given
satellite's azimuth at AOS and LOS.  I do see there's a toggle to display
either elevation or Azimuth information but I'm not sure what the azimuth
display is telling me.  Partial screenshot included.  Is there a scale
missing on the vertical axis that is intended to show azimuth?  If the
vertical axis had a scale from 0 to 360 degrees then the display would make
perfect sense to me.  Maybe I have the scale toggled OFF, but I don't think

Many thanks for this.  It's so easy to use!
