Satellite Tracking Programs

There are many other sat tracking programs out there. The ones I recommend are current and have immediate support for those starting out ... We're here to make this FUN and EASY!

Keplerian Data

Keplerian data is a set of mathematical "statements" of orbits of satellites. Update  your "Keps" once a week or so if you plan to work the ISS, since it gets repositioned often.

Sources for Keplerian Data

Although modern satellite tracking programs will "find" this date for you, AMSAT-NA offers NASA (2-line), AMSAT (verbose), bare NASA, and even .pdb Palm versions!

Available for Apple iOS, SSTV enables decoding and display of SSTV transmissions.It can be as simple as placing your iOS device near your radio's speaker!
