#future - Satellite auto sched - switch to next scheduled sat at end of current sat pass #future

Suggested change: When satellite auto scheduling is active:  When LOS occurs for the currently tracked satellite, immediately switch to the next scheduled satellite.  The satellite tracking window would then show the next expected satellite's track and its AOS. 
The current program action at LOS of the -current- satellite is to show the next AOS for the -same (current) - satellite.  It would be more useful to show the next -scheduled- satellite and its AOS.  Thanks, Rick - K5GZR

I agree, next scheduled sat, not the next pass of the just completed scheduled satellite pass.

Also, for SDR’s that provide RX/TX, a way to load the matching uplink frequency, net of Doppler.  I have a Pluto specifically.  Thanks.

Yes. Switching the map display to the next scheduled pass (and showing its Name, AOS, Az/El, etc.) would be very useful.
Thanks. Phil VE3HST
