  I calculate by these two elements;

(1) P3D-1
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

(2) P3D-2
1 93400U 00901D   00321.07636550  .00000001  00000-0  12567-4 0    14
2 93400   6.5034 247.6325 7357988 175.9296  13.3886  2.02435417    19

  (1) and Calsat32 told me that AO-40 will LOS at 12:58z, and
(2) also at 12:50z tonight. But I had lost 145.898MHz MB ay
12:44z at here.

  Maybe both of this Elem is little bit old. I hope the
latest one will be issued soon.
