Looking For Satellite Tracking Software

Post by Jay Crum » Sun Nov 27, 2016 7:09 am

Hey, All-

I am looking for satellite tracking software, preferably a shareware or freeware, but I am willing to pay for what I want. I have used NOVA in the past, and loved its simplicity, but it does not seem to be supported in Windows 10. Did a Google search, and keep coming up with old stuff, very little newer than 2010. Does anyone know if there is an update for NOVA, or a similar easy-to-use program?

Thanks,
Jay

The ones most people are using are either Orbitron or WXTrack. Personally I use Orbitron and it works very well, and can be easily interfaced with SDR# to automatic tuning of satellites.

I know it's a relatively old post, but just to keep things in one place:

There is a freeware tracker (I don't think it interfaces with SDR#, I haven't tried) which works well: "Gpredict" http://gpredict.oz9aec.net/index.php

It also lists the radio-freqs of the sats, and a radar showing where the sats will pass relative to your position.
