Re: whats wrong ?



John,

I just downloaded the latest STS-101 elements and they're close to last
week's amsat elements for ISS.
The NASA site I went to had today's elements for both STS-101 and ISS.
Remember ISS was loosing altitude rather rapidly and among other things STS
is (or has already) going to boost the orbit.  Also STS just by docking has
probably change the orbit even without orbit corrections.

I bet your ISS keps are too old.

Go to:  http://www.amsat.org/amsat/keps/menu.html
scroll down to the NASA/GSFC Orbital Data Bulletin Board  link and follow
that to the latest elements.

I usually check mine against the NASA select broadcast my local ATV repeater
or against the NASA web site.    The web site seems to lag a little, but it
gives you a rough check on your tracking.
