    "There needs to be an option to find passes at all times (24hr). This is necessary for Amateur Radio Sats (HAM) (and also for those who like to find ISS via telescope in daylight). So far as I can tell, only the Satellite Radio (Sirius, XM) sats show up during daylight. "

    "I tried using Satellite Pointer, but unfortunately it didn't work very well for me. Where I'm located, there are a lot of obstructions that make it difficult to aim a dish, so this app was of limited use for me. Other than that it seemed to work well."
