--- Layout improvements:
The chart index for Europe, Africa and Middle East have now
separate lines for the satellites at 19.2 and 13 East.

This gives you a choice of selecting the complete chart for
these locations OR separate charts for any of the satellites
located there. To get the complete chart, you now click on
the satellite position, not the satellite name.

This Update mail was unfortunately sent out a little late
due the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
The next one is scheduled for 6 January.
