InstantTrack is a satellite tracking program (what's that?) for PC compatibles running DOS or other environments for DOS programs.
InstantTrack was a favorite of many amateur radio satellite operators from the introduction of version 1.00 in 1989. Here are some of the reasons why:
Version 1.50 for 2000 enhanced InstantTrack without changing the things that made InstantTrack so popular. Here's what's new:
Beyond that, several minor releases in 2001 and 2002 brought the version number up to 1.55. See the open beta versions page for details on these changes.
InstantTrack is now free to download, use, and distribute. Until February 2019, InstantTrack was distributed by AMSAT organizations world-wide as a fund-raiser. 100% of proceeds from InstantTrack went to support the amateur radio satellite program.
InstantTrack 1.00 was written by Franklin Antonio, N6NKF, with some components contributed by Paul Williamson, KB5MU. InstantTrack 1.50 was created by KB5MU, based on a post-1.00 beta version created by N6NKF but never released. Both authors gratefully acknowledge the help of numerous volunteers who assisted with beta testing each release.
