Re: NORAD Keps for AO-40 Best Guess



http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ftp/keps/phase3d/p3d-tle.txt

OSCAR 40 / AO-40
1 93400U          00321.07636550  .00000001  00000-0  12567-4 0    14

This is the one that you just sent:

AO-40
1 26608U 00072A   00321.32927798 -.00000327  00000-0  00000+0 0    10
2 26608   6.4392 247.5623 7353411 176.2290 196.8447  2.01700940    00

I am now completely confused!
The catalog numbers do not match and neither do the elements!

Is the AMSAT site the correct one or is yours?
