It's about time I introduce myself,  I've been lurking on the lists --
Seesat and Hearsat -- for a while now.

I've been a casual satellite observer since I was a kid in the 70s (Casual
meaning "hey, look, there's a satellite!" :-))  When I found out about
prediction software a few years ago, I started listening to ham and
weather satellites.  Now I've become interested in orbital mechanics.

My home location is Gothenburg, Sweden, or more accurately 57deg 40min
north, 11deg 55min east.

I'm an amateur radio operator -- callsign SM6TFS.  I haven't been active
lately because  my home QTH doesn't admit much in the way of antennas.
Occasionally I operate SK6AB, the club station at the local university.

For food, I administrate Unix systems and develop database applications
at the university.
