with analysis programs.

DayNight  This utility program tables precise times for;

First Light, Sunrise, Sunset, Last Light, duration of Twilight and hours of sunshine for every day of the year at any specified location in Australia.  The tables are scrolled on screen and may be printed.

_______________________________

TasGain   It is of significant interest to pilots that for a given power setting, flight at higher altitude results in an increase in airspeed.  The overall net gain is limited by a variety of factors and this program allows the operator to enter all relevant data and determine the cruise altitude that will return the shortest overall flight time.

The homing instinct of Racing Pigeons has long been a mystery and remains so despite much research.

I have long been intrigued and fascinated by the homing instinct demonstrated by virtually all animals, particularly racing pigeons, hence my involvement here.

The use of computers and the more recent availability of GPS devices, and with electronic timimg, has enabled the simplification of race scoring systems while providing greater accuracy.

A Microsoft Excel based Spreadsheet system, which has been designed to accommodate the processing and recording of  race data by smaller clubs, is available free of charge on this web site.  Left Click on the pictures in the left side column for a preview or to download the Excel files.
