Re: Preliminary AO-40 Keps -- Post Burn #1



Hello this is yoshi.

  The AO-40's AOS time of this morning was 6:07 (21:07z) at my QTH
PM53JV. That V-MB signal had come from east sky and the strength
was S-2, not so strong.

  I used these elements for calculation as below;

(1) N2WWD Ken's #6
AO-40#K6
1 26609U 00072B   00346.67146000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    68
2 26609   6.4028 239.1973 7763693 192.2448   0.1497  1.57068165   527

(2) N2WWD Ken's #7
AO-40#K7
1 26609U 00072B     347.08068287  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    75
2 26609   8.7808 233.1519 8061857 198.5088  90.3015  1.25907436   537

(3) N2WWD Ken's #8
AO-40#K8
1 26609U 00072B   00346.67280000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    89
2 26609   6.4207 239.2459 8088586 192.0906   0.4805  1.25602300   521

(4) I adjust MM,ECCENTRICITY and EPOCHTIME from Ken's #6
AO-40#BC1
1 26609U 00072B   00346.67836000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    68
2 26609   6.4028 239.1973 8065000 192.2448   0.1497  1.26515550   537

  These elements and my Calsat32 shows the AOS/LOS times at my QTH
PM53JV as below;

----- -- Dec-11 -- ----- Dec-12 ------- --- Dec-13 ------
       AOS   (MA)   LOS   (MA)    AOS   (MA)   LOS   (MA) 
real  19:54z       11:03z        21:07z       - not yet -
(1)   19:59z (065) 07:05z (251)  23:05z (007) 08:57z (172)
(2)   21:28z (004) 16:47z (156)  19:28z (044) 11:08z (254)
(3)   19:37z (047) 11:05z (254)  20:59z (131) 05:58z (251)
(4)   19:33z (044) 11:06z (254)  21:01z (132) 05:50z (251)

  So Ken's #8 element or mine will be suitable for calculation
for these few days. 

  I wish I could to confirm today's LOS, but around 6:00z is
15:00 local time - my working daytime so I cannot watch it.
