I rescued this from an old microdrive cart in a bundle of QL stuff. I'm going to take a chance and share it here because I'm sure there can be no commercial interest in it (assuming it was ever actually a commercial package), as by default it only allowed the user to select a date up to 1999. The data is old, some of the sats it lists are probably no longer around and I'm sure there are modern more accurate ways of finding out the same info these days.
I know nothing about tracking satellites, but they appear to be amateur radio related satellites. It was written by the late John Branegan in 1985.
It's quite a large SuperBasic program (36k). To be able to enter dates beyond 1999, lines 2010 and 2020 should be changed to something like this:
Code: Select all
2010 IF YN<19 OR YN >50 THEN GOTO 2000
2020 LET YA=YN+2000
Zipped in windows, but it's only a _bas so no problems with headers.
