What's new:


Vers. 12.5


1. With previous versions the program showed the AOS times of

   the satellites below and within the world map. The program

   now additionally shows the max. elevation of the next pass.

   This will be helpful if at the user's location satellites

   can only be received above a certain minimum elevation.


2. For the same reason WinAOS now allows users to define a minimum

   elevation for the calculated passes.


3. The order of the selected satellites (menu 'Satellites') can

   now be changed using 'Drag & Drop' in a list. It is no longer

   necessary to delete and add satellites to change their order.


   With Wisat a new little auxilary program can be used for this



4. SatPC32 normally switches satellite transceivers into satellite

   mode when CAT control is activated.  This function can now

   optionally be de-activated. That is, a satellite transceiver

   may be controlled in single-band mode rather than satellite

   mode.  This can be useful if separate radios are used for

   Uplink and Downlink.


5. SatPC32ISS switches the Kenwood TS-2000 automatically into 

   Split mode. With previous program versions that had to be done



6. The automatic Internet updating of Keplerian data files has been



7. Some bugs have been fixed, i.e. the following:

   With previous program versions the direction arrows pointed into

   a wrong direction when the satellite's SSP was close to the date


   With the 3D view the error message (floating point error) came

   up in some situations.
