SAT-5

THE FIFTH GENERATION SATELLITE LOCATOR


THE PROGRAM SAT5 WAS DESIGNED TO QUICKLY LOCATE THE AZIMUTH AND ELEVATION
READINGS FOR PORTABLE OR FIXED SATELLITE EARTH STATIONS.

THE REQUIREMENTS:

IBM PC/XT/AT : AT LEAST 256K
COLOR OR HERCULES GRAPHIC CAPABILITIES.

THE PROGRAM WAS WRITTEN IN TURBO BASIC.
I DEVELOPED IT BECAUSE I TRAVELED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY SETTING UP EARTHSTATIONS
AND GETTING THE LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE OF A SITE WAS RELATIVELY IMPOSSIBLE.
(CALL YOUR LOCAL AIRPORT OR COAST GUARD AND SEE WHAT I MEAN)

THE MAP OF THE UNITED STATES,CANADA, AND MEXICO WAS PROVIDED TO ME BY A FRIEND
WHO SPENDS MOST OF HIS LIFE ON VARIOUS BBS'S AND HAPPENED ACROSS A GOOD MAP
OF THE U.S. FROM ANOTHER PUBLIC DOMAIN PROGRAM.(WHO EVER DREW THE MAP THANKS.)

THE FILES REQUIRED FOR SAT5 TO RUN ARE:

SAT5.EXE (THE PROGRAM)
LOGO.OVL (PRIMARY LOGO FOR SAT5)
SATINS1.OVL (PAGE 1 OF INSTRUCTIONS)
SATINS2.OVL (PAGE 2 OF INSTRUCTIONS)
SATINS3.OVL (PAGE 3 OF INSTRUCTIONS)
USA.OVL (MAP OF THE U.S.)
RESO.OVL (RESOLUTION WITH AZ/EL LAT/LON)
END.OVL (ADDRESS)
MAXLOGO.OVL (MAXSOFT LOGO)

THE READINGS I HAVE OBTAINED USING THIS PROGRAM HAVE BEEN FOR THE MOST DEAD ON.
BUT IN ONE OR TWO INSTANCES THEY HAVE BEEN OFF IN AZ .01 DEGREES (IF YOU CAN'T
FIND THE SATELLITE WITH THAT SMALL OFFSET ... CHECK YOUR RECEIVER FOR DEFECT)

I HAVE RELEASED THIS PROGRAM TO PUBLIC DOMAIN TO HELP OTHERS IN MY SITUATION.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE SOURCE CODE FOR THE PROGRAM SEND:
1. A BLANK FORMATTED DISKETTE 5 1/4 OR 3.5
2. THE APPROPRIATE MAILER ADDRESSED WITH POSTAGE.

YOU CAN SEND IT TO:
MAXSOFT/SOFTWARE SURGERY
900 E. ROANOKE ROAD
STERLING, VA. 22170
