I don't know of an existing open source program that will tell you,
for a particular place and time, which spy satellites you need to be
worried about.

You could write one in python in a couple of hours. Fetching TLEs and
calculating satellites visible from a place at a time using urllib and
pyEphem takes less than 80 lines. Figuring out FOV will probably be
another 100 lines or so.

GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
