RE: Re: Calculating Ascending Node?



The latest version does this but only for "circular"
orbits.  I made a decision as to which was more
important,  subsat at Apogee or ascending node
for each satellite class, highly elliptical or
near circular LEO.  I believe I could reconstruct
that calculation if it is required.

A great old DOS program called QuikTrak by Bob Mc Gwier  did this. I don't
know if the latest version still has that feaure, or if it works for AO-40,
or only for circular orbits, but it is worth a try. Check the AMSAT web
site for details.
