meteor-satchat

Meteor chat room app for ham radio satellite enthusiasts.

Beta version provides basic chat room and satellite location display.

This app is written in the Meteor Javascript framework

Contributions of code for features and patches are appreciated and will be mentioned in the CREDITS.

Satellite prediction calculations are done in the browser, based on West's PredictLib, a rewrite of KB2BD's PREDICT from C into Javascript.

TLEs are updated automatically. The end user does not have to mess around with TLEs manually.

Want to help out? test your own copy?

Instructions for setup on a nitrous.io development VPS to follow...

version 0.5.0 uses the John Magliacane's KD2BD Predict binary on the back end (License: GPL). That binary for 64 bit Ubuntu and the source tarball are also included.
