» SatCE v1.29 Description
SatCE is a satellite tracking software.
To correctly predict the satellite position you need fresh tle data (not more than 5 days old)!!!

Also the accurate location (lat, lon) and time. The UTC time is taken from Windows CE system therefore set appoprite time zone in settings.

Main futures:
This program is using SDP4/SGP4 algorithms to calculate near and far satellites positions in space. In all calculations of lat and lon the oblate Earth shape is used. The program uses GAPI engine for graphics and API for text mode.

SatCE can track up to 150 satellites at once (but this is not the hard limit).

SatCE reads standard two lines elements *.tle files containing satellites orbital parameters.

SatCE is very fast (much faster than I could find for sat tracking in internet for PocketPC)!!! A screen is updated every second without any delay with all these fancy things. There is also a lot of info like satellites parameters, moon distance its face size and some information about sun.

Satellites can be selected in map and sky mode by taping them with the stick. Only selected satellites from menu bar are displayed. By default all satellites are displayed. Come back to text mode is with help of enter button.

the amateur radio hobby uses it to predict passes of vhf uhf communications sats to talk across the country on frequencies that this would be otherwise impossible to to and to predict the ISS passes and be able to communicate with the astronauts on board and chat with them.

I hate to ask stupid question, but why would one want to track the satelites? There is no mention of the benefit of SatCe, just its feature. I just know what fancy things it can do, but I cant figure out why I want the things that it does? Does it speed up my other GPS mapping software from getting the satelites locations?

Same as Codrin & Kevin. Program locks up my device when it runs on WM6.1 On my device w/ WM5 it runs beautifully though.
