Alternate Satellite Information File
You can link to an alternate satellite information file for instant
access to information on the current map window, if the information in
is not adequate for your purposes. A good file to start with is the "The
Satellite Encyclopedia" by Jean-Philippe Donnio (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This is available on the World-Wide-Web at http://www.tele-satellit.com/tse/,
and probably other places.
To take advantage of this feature, you must first install or copy the alternate
file to your system. It need not be in the WinOrbit directory. It must be in
Windows Help format. Once it is installed, choose
on the main window, and select the proper filename and format. The default
format works for the Satellite Encyclopedia.
Once setup is complete, you can access the article on the satellite in the
current map window by pressing ctrl-F1 at any time. If the satellite
cannot be found (using the selected lookup format), a table of contents will be
presented, and you can look it up manually.
The "format" refers to the way the satellites are referenced in the help file's
"index". For example, the satellites can be most reliably found in "The
Satellite Encyclopedia" using the
in the form "CATNR nnnnn" where "nnnnn" is the 5-digit catalog number.
