Re: How often do I need to update Keps for STSORBITPLUS?

I mentioned elsewhere that the exact frequency with which keps need to be
updated is dependent on a number of issues, but from experience, you can go at
least 2 weeks between updates (I use 1 week).  More in the post you've probably
already read. :-)

Believe me, you will have _real_ fun if you work on your antennas.  a couple of
watts and a portable beam give me all the signal I need from UO-14, and that
practically down to the horizon. :-)
