--- Internal - PID change:
Since 1 March, all PIDs at SATCO DX Satellite Chart are presented
in decimal instead of hexadecimal!

The reason is that several users have asked for this switch and
the fact that more and more new software only deals with decimal PIDs.
If you want to get the hexadecimal PIDs, please use the "mouse-over"
feature and look at the bottom of your browser window.
