Hello Tony!

I had a closer look.  Some nice features, like the pass recording - I can dump
Cooledit and do this fully unattended!!! :)

However, the reporting is a bit light on.  I might keep this one for the  audio
side of things, as the pass recording feature looks like a real winner. :-)

Program seemed to run well on a test system at work.  One annoyance is the
strange, non-standard way used to enter longitude, if you're east of the Prime
Meridian.  Would be nice if we could use the - notation.  Also, some hints
could be provded on the page where you enter location data.

Just a few rough edges on a good program with some interesting features.

I'm still looking for something that can turn out data that can be easily
turned into something like you can see at http://www.qsl.net/vk3jed/so-35,html
(that's done by hand currently, pass by pass, city by city).  Attempting to do
it with existing software gets clumsy, because of the way reoprts are

I'm not sure if the author is here, if not, I'll try and pass my feedback on
directly.  This one looks like it might have found a niche in the shack. :-)
