Hi

try this site:
_http://www.lyngsat.com/


Click on the SatTracker link for the relevent satellite positon, Europe, Atlantic, then on the relevant satellite you want and you'll find all the information you require. Just click on the map for where you live.
Best wishes
Mickha

Gorb Track from

is worth a look at, although it a bit of a pain to get working - tip I needed to restart the programme a couple of times before it picked up the data files Id installed. Its a 5mb d/l
