Projects / K-Track


KTrack is an Linux satellite program that runs under KDE 3. It is especially well-suited for ham radio operators who are working through linear transponders. It provides automatic doppler compensation, a nice map display, a satellite transponder database, and more.

    •  20 Jan 2003 21:40

      Release Notes: A bug where the unable to init rig message appeared if the user had selected 'none' in the rig control has been fixed, as well as the bug that caused ktrack to crash if one of the selected rigs are 'none'. There are much faster AOS / LOS calculation routines. It will only calculate AOS for satellites that actually can reach our position. The ability to not correct the downlink has been removed; now the real way of doppler correction is always used.
