What will WinTrak do for me? WinTrak tracks orbiting satellites including the Moon, Sun, and Stars. The program can continually update the screen with the current positions of multiple satellites and tracking stations. WinTrak provides the user with a wealth of options to suit the particular needs of a broad spectrum of users. WinTrak is high quality software but at an affordable price!

WinTrak was designed to be easy-to-use for both the beginner and the expert alike. This program may be the best reason to switch to Windows! New with version 3.5 Auto Tracker or Kansas City Tracker interface to provide automatic antenna control with radio tuning for Doppler shift.

Why should I be interested in WinTrak I have a good satellite tracking program? Can your current satellite tracking software list all currently visible satellites and produce a list of the next passes? Can it provide a list of rise/set times for all satellites or just your favorite satellites? Can it display the satellite pass against a star background? Does your current software allow you to edit the elements and even provide a terminal program to download them? Can you produce a list of satellite passes for thousands of tracking stations with only a key press? Can you configure the program for your particular needs? Well if you answered no to any of these questions you are using the wrong software.
