This may interest the Quicksat-users that want to observe flashing
satellites of the BWGS program.

Mike McCants (thanks Mike !) has written a program that adds the 
information contained in the BWGS file 'program.rob' (as available 
from the archive) to the quicksat magnitude file (quicksat.mag).

More specifically, it enters all BWGS-satellites into the quicksat.mag
file, sets the 'classes of objects' flag to 'B' and adds the
BWGS priority code and the comments in the ROB file to the quicksat.mag
file.

This program (XFROB) is now available at the seesat-l archive. Send a
message with Subject: archive get quicksat/xfrob.uu
to SeeSat-L-request@iris01.plasma.mpe-garching.mpg.de

Uudecode and unzip to get the source file, two input files and the
executable for PC's. The program is written in Fortran and compiles
easily on non-PC systems.

Alternatively, you can download it from Neil's anonymous ftp-site at
ftp.physics.ox.ac.uk 
at /pub/sat/programs/ibmpc/xfrob.zip
