I just caught STS-77 the other morning over Florida thanks to a break in
the clouds.  It reminded me of the poor viewing conditions we get here
during the summer months.  Between the bug bites & stormy conditions I
decided to find another "related" hobby.

I'd like to know what programs are out there for "Calculating the Decay
of Satellites"?  This needs to be something for a beginner with good
documentation.  I tried Kelso's DECAY3BG.ZIP a while back but it was
over my head due the lack of any text files.
