Gpredict is a real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction program written using the Gtk+ widgets. Gpredict is targetted mainly towards ham radio operators but others interested in satellite tracking may find it useful as well. Gpredict uses the SGP4/SDP4 algorithms, which are compatible with the NORAD Keplerian elements. Gpredict includes the following features: * Tracking an infinite number of satellites only limited by the physical memory and processing power of the computer. * Display the tracking data in lists, maps, polar plots and any combination of these. * You can have many modules open at the same either in a notebook or in their own windows. The module can also run in full-screen mode. * You can use many ground stations. Ground station coordinates can either be entered manually or you can get some appriximate values from a list with more than 2000 predefined locations worldwide. * Predict upcoming passes for satellites, including passes where a satellite may be visible and communication windows * Very detailed information about both the real time data and the predicted passes. * Gpredict can run in real-time, simulated real-time (fast forward and backward), and manual time control. * Doppler tuning of radios via Hamlib rigctld. * Antenna rotator control via Hamlib rotctld.

Changes in version 1.3 (1 Mar 2011) - Feature request 2873824: Flip Passes. - Feature Request 3022617: Malaysia's location. - Automatically refresh the Sky at a glance view every minute. - Added more checks with hamlib communications. - List satellite as available or selected when configuring module. - Fixed bug 2116691: Leave network connection open. - Fixed bug 3099314: Rotator Thrashing. - Fixed bug 2167508: problems in rotator controller. - Fixed bug from Ubuntu #706452: Update from local files won't work with files in UPPER case - Fixed bug 3171615: Searching for satellites in the satellite selector - Fixed bug 3113190: .desktop file error - Address bug 2945538: Pass in polar display going outside the circle (Improve the graphical portion.) Gpredict is written using the Gtk+ widget set, which is available for most Unix like operating systems, Mac and Windows. Following libraries are required for successful compilation of Gpredict: - Gtk+ 2.18 or later - GLib and Gthread 2.22 or later - Libcurl 7.19 or later - GooCanvas 0.15 or later - Hamlib (runtime only, not required for build) If you compile Gpredict from source you will also need the development parts of the above mentioned libraries, e.g. gtk+-dev or gtk+-devel and so on.
