Re: AOS-AO40 Ernandes set five

Confirming mode S on at (9dec) 17:34:02 MA 15, off at 18:12:59 ma 30
For N5GPC and others needing set five:

AO40 set 5
obj #	#26609
epoc	00 343.500000
incl	6.3783
raan	240.2081
exec	0.734748
arp	190.5533
ma	201.9831
mm	2.03015472
decay	1 e-08
orbit	45

Yes there is confusion as to what set number goes with what source.  Ken
Ernandes is a devoted AMSAT member and has consistently been "spot on!".
He calls this set five so I'll simply pass this on with that number.  This
set is the only one in which the Mean Anomaly appears accurate as noted by
the S band beacon on and off times.     Cliff K7RR
