TRACKINGSAT is a new conception on satellite tracking software. TRACKINGSAT computes antenna azimuth and elevation in international locations. Also, supply magnetic declination to world-wide locations. With him, you get with exactness the focal point (feedhorn position), F/D ratios, polar mounting declination, antenna temperature, system temperature, merit factor (G/T), carrier noise ratio (C/N) and evaluate the system quality. Also, compute solar outages dates and sunrise/sunset times of your location.
TRACKINGSAT transfer in Real Time the latitude and longitude from your Garmin GPS equipment to city database. Also, transfer waypoints to city database. If you have a laptop computer you can to install TRACKINGSAT on it and carry it in your vehicle.

DEFINITION OF SHAREWARE
Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs differ on details - some request registration while others require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue using the software to an updated program with printed manual.
Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished programers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are of comparable quality (in both cases, there are good programs and bad ones). The main difference is in the method of distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a specific group. For example, some authors require written permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their Shareware.
Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back garantee - if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it.
