[Moon-Net] Geometric (Spatial) polarization calculator?

Hello Bob,

If you wish you can try EME System.

With the planner module you will be able to play with that (geometry and
time). See example (sorry for the low resolution but limited to 100ko) with
using the "common window"  feature.

73 and regards.

Subject: [Moon-Net] Geometric (Spatial) polarization calculator?

 

Is there a program which will show the geometric (spatial) polarization
rotation between two stations and allow you to easily  go forward and
backward in time to see how it changes?  I know WSJT does the calculation at
the current time. EMECalc SkyMap allows you to scroll backwards and forwards
in time, but only shows moon data (alt/ez etc.) for the home station. I saw
a reference somewhere that said EMECalc displays spatial polarization, but
if it does I haven't found it.

 

The Astronomical Data window of WSJT does display the info but I don't see
any easy way to scroll backwards and forwards in time like you can in the
EMECalc Skymap.

 

What would be really nice would be a map of the world you could click on to
set your location and which would then calculate a contour (color coded?)
map showing spatial polarization across the hemisphere that could see the
moon - and shift backwards and forwards in time -  but that's almost
certainly wishing for too much!
