Satellite Finder 5.0 Build 1395
An application that displays information about the position of nearby satellites and the recommended pointing angles to intercept their signal
Since this is a Java-based program, you need to install the working environment on your computer in order to run the application.
Satellite Finder boasts a simple and straightforward layout that gives users the possibility to choose a location by selecting a state and city, entering the ZIP code, or providing details about the geographic location (latitude, longitude, cardinal direction).
As soon as you insert the information about a location, the tool automatically generates data in the primary pane, namely comprehensive information about the found satellites, as well as their azimuth and elevation angles.
The satellite position data cannot be exported to a file or printed, but it can be copied to the Clipboard and paste it into other third-party applications. Since there aren’t many configuration settings, even rookies can master the process with just a few clicks.
During our testing we have noticed that Satellite Finder displays data very quickly and without errors throughout the entire process.
As it would be expected from such a small utility, it manages to remain light on the system resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
To sum it up, Satellite Finder offers an intuitive environment for helping users get information about satellite position data, and is suitable for beginners and professionals alike.
