AO-10 -- Looks Like Space Command Found It!



Space Command released an update to AO-10's Keps that's 8 days newer than
W4SM's latest set (#5).  The Space Command and W4SM Keps (respectively)
follow:

OSCAR 10
1 14129U 83058B   99028.89688500  .00000059  00000-0  10000-3 0  5605
2 14129  27.0431  46.4455 6008699 285.7546  18.5079  2.05825647 89555

AO-10
1 14129U 83058B   99020.76950000  .00000000  00000-0  55553-5 0    54
2 14129  26.9297  46.9808 6011222 284.2856 119.1380  2.05869872117355

The Keps computed by W4SM and G3RUH produced much better position
predictions than the outdated Space Command set (that had not been updated
since July 1998).  Providing the AMSAT community with  computed Keps was an
outstanding effort on the part of both W4SM and G3RUH, without which AO-10
would have been all but unusable.  Thanx again Stacey and James!
