Explanation Please - Satellite Passes

George Stein - NJ3H


Looking at NOAA 18.  The large map information agrees with Orbitron, so two programs agreeing is great!.

However the popup map, doesn't agree with the main map.  The AOS values are different between the two maps,  So I am obviously not understanding the purpose of the popup map.  Please clarify.

Is there a way to show more passes (say the current plus the next 2) on the main map?

Also, I would love to see along side the AOS at the top of the main map, the LOS as well. Then visually one has both important times clearly visible.  I presume AOS is calculated based on crossing the horizon and not some set minimum elevation.

Thanks very much.
