Hello All,

In case you are new to the list, you can find pointers to the programs 
mentioned below (and others) at either:

http://www.satellite.eu.org/orbsoft.html
				     /tletools.html
				     /iridium.html

I've added the Tiger Map Server pointer (as recommended by Jake Rees) to the 
iridium.html page. If anyone knows of other map servers having coordinates 
for other countries and continents, let me know.
