Satellite Tracking with Linux
Information about SatTrack for Unix is available at http://www.primenet.com/~bester/sattrack.html.
SatTrack 3.1 can be downloaded and used free for private, non-commercial purposes, and the author, Manfred Bester, offers version 4.0 of SatTrack with more options and a more graphical interface for commercial use.
