Real time satellite tracking tool

 Gpredict is a real-time satellite tracking and orbit prediction  application. It can track a large number of satellites and display their  position and other data in lists, tables, maps, and polar plots (radar  view). Gpredict can also predict the time of future passes for a  satellite, and provide you with detailed information about each pass.  Gpredict is different from other satellite tracking programs in that it  allows you to group the satellites into visualization modules.  

GPS III Space Vehicle 01

SpaceX is now targeting December 22nd for launch of the United States  Air Force's first Global Positioning System III space vehicle (SV) from  Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station,  Florida. 

Weather is 80% favorable for the launch window which opens at  8:55 a.m. EST, 13:55  UTC.   For this mission, the satellite will be deployed to medium Earth orbit  approximately 1 hour and 56 minutes after liftoff. 

Raspberry Pi Satellite Tracker For Ham Radio

Ham Radio with K0PIR -  f you a are brand new to the Raspberry Pi this is a great program to  learn on, install and configure. Very easy to install on the Raspberry  Pi 3. Just install it from add/remove software. It will track Ham Radio  satellites and update the TLE automatically. Interesting program for  watching and if you have a Yaesu FT 817/857/897 it will connect with  those radios and possibly a few more.
